The Humanitarian Civilian

How the Idea of Distinction Circulates Within and Beyond International Humanitarian Law - Rebecca Sutton

In conversation with:

  • Frédéric Mégret, McGill University
  • Helen Kinsella, University of Minnesota

 

In her book, Dr Rebecca Sutton uses real-world examples and quotes from qualitative research to show how problems of distinction play out in practice. She provides innovative, empirical analysis of how distinction operates for humanitarian actors, and examines training in detail, to help readers understand how legal rules travel outside of law books to civil-military training spaces. Available via Oxford University Press.
