In a ruling which goes to the heart of international criminal law, the judgment of the court found that “crimes against international law are committed by men, not by abstract entities, and only by punishing individuals who commit such crimes can the provisions of international law be enforced” International Military Tribunal 1947-1949. The narrative is accompanied by a Crime Base Matrix that isolates acts of violence that may constitute war crimes or crimes against humanity, with specific articles of international humanitarian law cited for each act. At the heart of the report is the question about what differentiates ordinary civic protest from armed, asymmetric conflict.

Judges, Law and War examines how judicial bodies have influenced the substantive rules and principles of the law of armed conflict, and studies the creation, application and enforcement of this corpus of laws.
