Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on a very narrow and specific angle of the role of international law in combating terrorism which is the mutual reinforcement and complementarity between International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and Human Rights Law (HRsL). It attempts to identify possible gaps and areas for further study, particularly with regard to prevention and to the institutional response to terrorism from both IHL and HRsL perspectives. Combating terrorism has been a top priority for the international community in the past few decades. The chapter also focuses on the specific angle of ensuring respect for IHL through better use of human rights mechanisms as means to combat terrorism which partially finds its origins and takes the manifestations of grave breaches of the laws and customs governing the conduct of hostilities.

Keywords: combating terrorism; Human Rights Law (HRsL); human rights mechanisms; international community; International Humanitarian Law (IHL); international law
