Abstract:

The Law of Internal Armed Conflict, a new international legal regime is emerging from the confluence of the Law of War and Human Rights law. This new regime seeks to apply humanitarian principles to internal armed conflicts while balancing a states sovereign right to conduct their own domestic affairs. Increasingly criminalized, this regime is seeing growing enforcement by international bodies. This thesis emphasizes the importance of domestic enforcement of this regime to maximize its protection of humanitarian interests.
