Armed Groups - Objects or Subjects of International Law?

         Wednesday, December 19th, 2018 between 14:15-15:45

Room 1013, Terrace building, University of Haifa*


States are presumed to be the main, if not the sole, subjects of international law. Nevertheless, we have recently viewed the degradation of their status, as well as the introduction of new and meaningful players to the international law arena, among them, armed groups. From a positivist perspective, armed groups have been addressed and defined narrowly in the international law sphere, mainly in IHL provisions. In light of their important role, be it in armed conflict, or outside of it, their impact on civilian population, trade and internal national affairs, it is important to address the definition of armed groups in international law and the implications of such definition.
