Chapter Summary

In the last two decades of the twentieth century, the number of treaty rules specifically addressing non-international armed conflicts has enormously increased. Analysing the evolution of the international law of armed conflicts throughout the centuries it appears that the majority of norms currently regulating internal armed conflicts were produced from 1980 onwards. By analysing the formation of the relevant treaty law drafted in this period of time, this chapter tries to understand the reasons behind the recent development of the treaty rules applicable to internal armed conflicts. It deals with the treaty law-making process relating to the drafting of Amended Protocol II to the Conventional Weapons Convention, the Ottawa Convention, the Second Hague Protocol for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict, the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the Conventional Weapons Convention as amended by the Second Review Conference.
