Abstract:

Since its founding in 1884, the US Naval War College has been committed to the study and teaching of the law impacting military operations. As part of its commitment, from June 20-22, 2007 the Naval War College hosted a conference entitled International Law and Military Operations. Initiated in 1990, with a conference addressing the targeting of enemy merchant shipping, the international law conference series brings together international scholars and practitioners, experts in military operations and students to examine topical legal issues. Commencing with that inaugural colloquium, the proceedings of and papers from each succeeding conference have been published as a volume of the Naval War Colleges internationally acclaimed International Law Studies Blue Book series. This Blue Book continues that practice. The conference speakers explored several diverse, yet timely, subjects relevant to the planning and conduct of military operations. These include maritime strategy and the global legal order, the law of the sea and maritime security, the law of armed conflict, maritime enforcement of United Nations Security Council resolutions, coalition operations, and the 2006 conflict in Lebanon. This volume of the International Law Studies series is a compilation of remarks made during the conference and of articles that expand upon the thoughts articulated during the conference.
