Human Rights and the Law of Armed Conflict: A Selected Annotated Bibliography

William J. Perry

Center for Hemispheric Defense Studies Compiled by Patrick Paterson, Perry Center Professor of

Practice, with assistance from research interns Ral Quintana and Kaitlyn Robinson

Human Rights and the Law of Armed Conflict: A Selected Annotated Bibliography This collection of resources is intended to present a diverse selection of articles, reports, and books on human rights and the law of armed conflict. From a purely academic perspective, we hope it inspires introspection and reflection by individuals and, in particular, for military professionals. We anticipate that the readings cited in this bibliography will encourage and enrich the discussion of these issues in communities dedicated to the study of security and defense matters.

This is not intended to be an exhaustive or definitive bibliography, but rather a living document, one that grows and evolves as new issues and new materials arise. This bibliography was last updated on September 10, 2013. We welcome any suggestions or recommendations for additional texts. Please email them to Patrick.paterson@ndu.edu.

Inclusion of materials in this bibliography does not imply or constitute endorsement of the views contained in them by the Perry Center, NDU, or the Department of Defense. The diversity of the material is intended to be part of a broader educational effort to provide different points of view and to stimulate discussion.
