Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Investigating Operational Incidents in a Military Context: Law, Justice, Politics contains the table of contents, acknowledgements and a list of contributors. The book discusses that militaries are organized to prepare for the deployment of, and where necessary to deploy, lethal force to achieve strategic goals. In operational mode, it is generally that lethal capacity, used in an appropriately targetted, disciplined and proportionate way, which is to the fore. Alleged breaches of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) or the disciplinary regulations of particular militaries, or both, require at the very least an initial assessment to determine the facts and then, if warranted, a more substantial investigation.

Keywords: International Humanitarian Law (IHL); militaries; operational incidents
