Abstract

This entry discusses the scope and definition of the doctrine of belligerency and the consequences of the recognition of a state of belligerency of a state or non-state actor. The issue of unprivileged belligerency and the recognition of certain forms of warfare, including guerrilla warfare and the right of an occupied territory to resist in the context of a belligerent occupation. The doctrine has been rendered largely obsolete, but could apply in a narrow set of circumstances in the future.

Keywords: belligerency, guerrilla warfare, recognition, internal armed conflict
