Editorial Reviews


‘What makes this book such a superb teaching tool? The text begins by providing separate background chapters on human rights and conflict studies. This makes the case studies and topical chapters completely accessible for a wide range of students. Clearly written and completely up-to-date, War, Conflict and Human Rights will undoubtedly find itself on  the mandatory reading list of many syllabi.’ - Julie Mertus, American University, USA

‘[the authors] have tackled the most perplexing issues of humanitarian protection and conflict resolution, clarified the hard choices and explored their implications in probing case studies. They demonstrate that the tools now available to promote human rights, though far from adequate, can make a positive difference when they are mobilized vigorously and authentically, respecting both shared rights and legitimate differences.’ - Michael Doyle, Columbia University, USA

‘This indispensable volume, useful for both teaching and research, navigates a path around the pitfalls inherent in the age-old conceptual struggle between peace and justice. In doing so it details a sophisticated agenda for conflict resolution and peacebuilding, through international humanitarian and human rights law, for the ultimate goal of conflict prevention.’ - Oliver Richmond, University of St. Andrews, UK

‘Thoughtfully designed and utterly thought-provoking, this interdisciplinary text draws on law, the humanities, and politics in relation to conflict management. In so doing, the authors offer a sorely needed practical and theoretical approach to the intricately layered legal and political relationships embedded in armed conflict and the actions taken to prevent, intervene, mediate, or account for the often resulting massive human toll.’ - Human Rights Quarterly, Volume 32, Number 4, November 2010, p1051
