Abstract

Compared with land and naval warfare, air and missile warfare is a reasonably recent phenomenon. Not unsurprisingly, therefore, the law that applies to air missile warfare draws on both of the other domains, either directly or indirectly, for relevant legal rules and principles. This chapter covers legal rules and principles which clearly apply to air and missile warfare and the manner of application is reasonably uncontroversial, a further group of rules and principles where there is significant agreement on broad application but not necessarily the specifics, and also those issues which remain areas of active controversy.

Keywords: air, missile, warfare, law, humanitarian law, armed conflict, IHL, LOAC
