about

How do international human rights and humanitarian law protect vulnerable individuals during peace and war? Provost analyzes systemic similarities and differences between the two to examine how they are each designed to achieve their specific goals. He describes the dynamics of human rights and humanitarian law, revealing that each performs a task for which it is better suited than the other, and that the fundamentals of each field remain partly incompatible. He covers all relevant materials from the UN, ICTY, ICTR, and regional organizations in Europe, Africa and Latin America.
RENE PROVOST is Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Law and the Institute of Comparative Law, McGill University. He has published in such journals as British Yearbook of International Law, Columbia Journal of Transnational Law, and University of Miami Inter-American Law Review.
