The novel provides a wide research of main records and around literary works, to examine whether and how current guidelines on the use of power in worldwide law implement to a relatively new trend such as the online world functions. It analyzes the guidelines of jus ad bellum and jus in bello, whether based on agreement or customized, and studies why each concept is applicable or does not implement to online functions. Those guidelines which can be seen to make use of are then mentioned in the perspective of each particular type of online function. The novel details the key concerns of whether a online function quantities to the use of power and, if so, whether the sufferer state can exercise its right of self-defence; whether online functions induce the use of worldwide relief law when they are not associated with conventional hostilities; what guidelines must be followed in the perform of online hostilities; how neutrality is impacted by online operations; whether those performing online functions are combatants, citizens, or citizens taking immediate part in hostilities.

Dehumanisierung der Kriegführung

Herausforderungen für das Völkerrecht und die Frage nach der Notwendigkeit menschlicher Kontrolle

Author: Tassilo Singer

Publisher: Springer-Verlag

ISBN: 3662578565

Dieses Buch diskutiert, ob menschliche Kontrolle bei der Kriegführung nach dem Völkerrecht vorausgesetzt wird. Dies wird bei den Diskussionen zu autonomen Waffensystemen (LAWS) im Rahmen der UN-Waffenkonvention unter dem Thema „meaningful human control“ gefordert. Praktisch betrifft es die Frage, ob man Systeme ohne jegliche menschliche Kontrollmöglichkeit bei der Zielbekämpfung einsetzen darf und falls ja, unter welchen Voraussetzungen. Dies umfasst sowohl das Waffenrecht (darf eine Waffe überhaupt eingesetzt werden?) als auch das Einsatzrecht (wie darf eine Waffe in einem konkreten Einsatz verwendet werden?). Die rechtliche Analyse erstreckt sich auf vollautonome Waffensysteme und Cyber Operationen und geht auf die jeweiligen Eigenheiten ein. Zudem wird eine Lösung für Verantwortungslücken, die durch fehlende menschliche Kontrolle entstehen, entwickelt.

Technology and the Law on the Use of Force

New Security Challenges in the Twenty-First Century

Author: Jackson Maogoto

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1134445644

Category: Law

Page: 130

As governmental and non-governmental operations become progressively supported by vast automated systems and electronic data flows, attacks of government information infrastructure, operations and processes pose a serious threat to economic and military interests. In 2007 Estonia suffered a month long cyber assault to its digital infrastructure, described in cyberspace as ‘Web War I’. In 2010, a worm—Stuxnet—was identified as supervisory control and data acquisition systems at Iran’s uranium enrichment plant, presumably in an attempt to set back Iran’s nuclear programme. The dependence upon telecommunications and information infrastructures puts at risk Critical National Infrastructure, and is now at the core of national security interests. This book takes a detailed look at these new theatres of war and considers their relation to international law on the use of force. Except in cases of self-defence or with the authorisation of a Security Council Resolution, the use of force is prohibited under the UN charter and customary international law. However, the law of jus ad bellum was developed in a pre-digital era where current technological capabilities could not be conceived. Jackson Maogoto asks whether the law on the use of force is able to deal with legal disputes likely to arise from modern warfare. Key queries include how one defines an armed attack in an age of anti-satellite weaponry, whether the destruction of a State’s vital digital eco-system or the "blinding" of military communication satellites constitutes a threat, and how one delimits the threshold that would enliven the right of self-defence or retaliatory action. The book argues that while technology has leapt ahead, the legal framework has failed to adapt, rendering States unable to legally defend themselves effectively. The book will be of great interest and use to researchers and students of international law, the law of armed conflict, Information Technology and the law, and counter-terrorism.

The Handbook of the International Law of Military Operations

Category: Intervention (International law)

Page: 816

The second edition of this well received handbook provides a comprehensive overview and annotated commentary of those areas of international law most relevant to the planning and conduct of military operations. It covers a wide scope of military operations, ranging from operations conducted under UN Security Council mandate to (collective) self-defense and consensual and humanitarian operations and identifies the relevant legal bases and applicable legal regimes governing the application of force and treatment of persons during such operations. It also devotes attention to the law governing the status of forces, military use of the sea and airspace and questions of international (criminal) responsibility for breaches of international law. New developments such as cyber warfare and controversial aspects of law in relation to contemporary operations, such as targeted killing of specific individuals are discussed and analyzed, alongside recent developments in more traditional types of operations, such as peacekeeping and naval operations. The book is aimed at policy officials, commanders and their (military) legal advisors who are involved with the planning and conduct of any type of military operation and is intended to complement national and international policy and legal guidelines and assist in identifying and applying the law to ensure legitimacy and contribute to mission accomplishment. It likewise fulfils a need in pertinent international organizations, such as the UN, NATO, Regional Organizations, and NGOs. It also serves as a comprehensive work of reference to academics and is suitable for courses at military staff colleges, academies and universities, which devote attention to one or more aspects of international law treated in the book. This mix of intended users is reflected in the contributors who include senior (former) policy officials and (military) legal advisors, alongside academics engaged in teaching and research in these areas of international law.

The Concept of Military Objectives in International Law and Targeting Practice

Author: Agnieszka Jachec-Neale

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 131759472X

Category: Law

The concept that certain objects and persons may be legitimately attacked during armed conflicts has been well recognised and developed through the history of warfare. This book explores the relationship between international law and targeting practice in determining whether an object is a lawful military target. By examining both the interpretation and its post-ratification application this book provides a comprehensive analysis of the definition of military objective adopted in 1977 Additional Protocol I to the four 1949 Geneva Conventions and its use in practice. Tackling topical issues such as the targeting of TV and radio stations or cyber targets, Agnieszka Jachec-Neale analyses the concept of military objective within the context of both modern military doctrine and the major coalition operations which have been undertaken since it was formally defined. This monograph will be of great interest to students and scholars of international law and the law of armed conflict, as well as security studies and international relations.

Recht in der Bibel und in kirchlichen Traditionen

Der Zusammenhang und das Verhältnis von Ethik und Recht gehören zu den fundamentalethischen Herausforderungen und werden seit der Antike diskutiert. Dennoch stellt sich dieses Problem je nach aktueller Situation immer wieder neu. Fragt man nach der Stellung des Rechts in der biblischen Überlieferung, dann fällt seine Vielgestaltigkeit auf. Es trägt in sich selbst geschichtlichen Charakter und hat sich seinerseits in verschiedener Weise auf das Rechtsdenken unterschiedlicher Epochen und Regionen ausgewirkt. Über den biblischen Befund hinaus diskutiert der Band die kirchlichen Traditionen, die sich auf sehr unterschiedliche Art und Weise mit dem vorfindlichen (staatlichen) Recht auseinandersetzen.

In the twenty-first century, traditional legal borders – both geographic and intellectual – have been increasingly contested. Many observers have questioned whether the long-held conceptions of sovereign state boundaries remain salient in a world of technology-accelerated transnational flows of people, capital, and information. Meanwhile, scholars across the social sciences and humanities have begun crossing disciplinary borders in unprecedented ways, co-opting new methodologies and engaging in meaningful and sustained dialogue about the meaning of law in its changing global context. These emerging movements prompt important questions: what are the nature and implications of shifting legal borders? What does the future hold for them? What role do new technologies play in this evolving story? Law and Disciplinarity: Thinking beyond Borders sets forth to answer these questions by way of distinguished scholars drawn from across a wide range of disciplines, including law, political science, international relations, and communications.
