Classification of Conflicts in International Humanitarian Law

The Legal Impact of Foreign Intervention in Civil Wars

Noam Zamir, Assistant Professor, School of Law, City University of Hong Kong

Noam Zamir provides a thorough examination of the theoretical basis of classification of conflicts in international humanitarian law (IHL), with special focus on the legal impact of armed foreign intervention in civil wars. Classification of Conflicts in International Humanitarian Law enriches the discourse on IHL by providing an in-depth analysis of classification of conflicts and examining recent civil wars with foreign interventions, such as the Libyan civil war (2011), Mali civil war (2012-2015) and the ongoing civil war in Yemen.

‘This is a well-informed and topical addition to the literature on the classification of armed conflicts. Dr Zamir’s analysis is grounded in a lucid assessment of state practice and benefits from in-depth knowledge of international law and the law of armed conflict.’
– Guglielmo Verdirame, King's College London, UK
