Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the international legal side of explosive remnants of war (ERW): it focuses on the rights and duties which exist in general international law and on international humanitarian law in particular with special reference to the ERW situation in Eritrea and Ethiopia. It introduces the main legal terminology on landmines, booby traps and other explosive ordnance producing ERW. The chapter also introduces the magnitude of the problem of ERW in Eritrea and Ethiopia in general and in particular as a consequence of the Eritrean-Ethiopian armed conflict which raged between 1998 to 2000. The chapter provides a picture of the devastating effects of the war and the presence of ERW on these poor countries. It also focuses on the application of some of the 'cardinal' principles of international humanitarian law. The chapter discusses the ius in bello and ius post bellum.
