Chapter Summary

This chapter provides concluding comments for this book, which deals exclusively with treaty rules specifically designed to apply in situations of internal armed conflicts. The explanation, in light of the findings of the book, of the reasons for the recent developments in the law of non-international armed conflicts must be necessarily tentative. As the situation which treaty norms are intended to address changes, one would expect to find changes in the norms themselves, just to keep the law up-to-date. It is therefore no surprise that three of the main elements which have affected the formation of treaty rules regard: 1) the changing face of non-international armed conflicts; 2) the impact of the facts relating to the armed conflicts; and 3) the changes in the tools used to fight. The fourth principal element affecting the formation of the treaty rules, however, concerns changes in the treaty lawmaking process itself.

Keywords: international law; non-international armed conflicts; treaty rules
