Abstract

This essay seeks to examine some of the under–discussed questions in the debate regarding human rights and the law of armed conflict. What are the implications of the classification of a conflict in mapping this relationship? This is principally a technical matter. More incisively, and more conceptually, to what extent does the State bear responsibility to protect the human rights of its combatants? Could this question be a test case, or breaking point, in this debate?

Keywords: international law, international humanitarian law, law of armed conflict, human rights, classification of conflict, combatants
