Launched in 2006 with the support of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, this research project analyzes the practice of international organisations relating to the applicability of human rights in times of armed conflict. It is carried out under the supervision of Prof. Vincent Chetail.
This research project highlights the growing role of international human rights law as a normative framework for armed conflicts. To this end, it carries out a systematic study of the relevant resolutions adopted by international organisations in the last decades. The objective is to determine which human rights norms are generally considered as applicable in times of armed conflict and to define their respective content. The outcome of this project will be published in English as a monograph in 2011/2012.
