Determining the end of belligerent occupation: assessment of possible situations
MetadataShow full item record
The Geneva Conventions and Additional Protocol I do not provide much guidance in determining the end of belligerent occupation in international armed conflict situations and discussions within the academic circle provided little assistance in analysing the situation. In this article attempt has been made to analyse various mechanisms and instances which may or may not end belligerent occupation. While the matter is largely a question of fact, the write-up will assist academics and practitioners alike in clarifying the delicate nature of the concept of occupation.
