Soft Law Instruments Regulating Armed Conflict. Are International Human Rights Standards Reflected?Back Citation manager More details Overview Reading mode Highlights
The article describes soft law instruments regulating armed conflict and explores to what extent international human rights standards are reflected in them. It concludes that the majority of the existing soft law instruments deliberately exclude international human rights standards and hence seem to reflect an outdated legal position. Soft law instruments providing operational guidance to soldiers in armed conflict should reflect all relevant legal sources applicable to armed conflict, including international human rights law.
