Abstract

This short paper introduces the reader to the mutating military concept of hybrid warfare and one of its implementing methods, the use of law as a weapon. We aim to provide a current, comprehensive definition of the terms “hybrid warfare” and “lawfare”. This submission focuses on the following areas: where law has been/is being used as a method of war, namely the Jus ad bellum, the jus in bello and the law of treaties in international relations.

Keywords: Hybrid Warfare, Law fare, Rule of Law, Jus ad bellum, Jus in bello, Legal Asymmetry, Russia, Ukraine
