Comment on “Internationalized Armed Conflicts in International Law”

As part of a book symposium for Opinio Juris, I comment on “Internationalized Armed Conflicts in International Law” by Kubo Mačák. The book is an insightful analysis of the tipping point at which non-international armed conflict (NIAC) may be ‘internationalized’ and considered an international armed conflict (IAC). I had a few thoughts, relating specifically to conflict in South Asia, and to the ‘humanization’ of international law.
