International Humanitarian Law

International International Law & Armed Conflict ( (LAWS 5136))

Getting Started

International humanitarian law is a set of rules which seek, for humanitarian reasons, to limit the effects of armed conflict. It protects persons who are not or are no longer participating in the hostilities and restricts the means and methods of warfare. International humanitarian law is also known as the law of war or the law of armed conflict. 
This is a guide to resources for CWRU law students research paper topics for their international humanitarian law seminar.

Please check the below sources for a quick beginning  research on international humanitarian law: 

Law students may also schedule a Personal Research Consultation (PeRC) with one of the librarians.
