Summary
This book examines different ways in which laws governing the use of force and conduct of warfare have become subject to intense scrutiny and contestation since initiation of the war on terror. Since the end of the Cold War, the nature of security challenges has changed radically and this change has been recognized by the UN, governments and academics around the world. The 9/11 attacks and the subsequent launch of the "war on terror" added a new dimension to this debate on the nature and utility of international law due to demands for a change in laws governing self-defense and humanitarian intervention. This book analyzes the nature of these debates and focuses on key issues that have led to the contemporary questioning of both the utility and composition of international law on the use of force and the practicability of using force, including handling of "prisoners" and "security risks". It also identifies the sources of division and addresses the capacities of security policy and international law to adapt to the changed international environment
