Abstract:

In 2005 the International Committee of the Red Cross ICRC completed a ten-year study on customary international humanitarian law, based on an assessment of the State practice of forty-seven nations over the preceding thirty years. Somewhat surprisingly, but perhaps owing to the sheer size of the ICRC Study, there have been relatively few scholarly articles written about it, and only one State has officially responded to the ICRC the United States, in a letter co-signed by the Department of State Legal Adviser, and the Department of Defense General Counsel.
