This invaluable work is accordingly of great interest for those - jurists or otherwise - seeking a structured and clear overview and in-depth, yet concise, development on the rules and challenges of the law of non-international armed conflicts. In addition to being an enjoyable read, the book equally provides, for international humanitarian law scholars and practitioners - even the most eminent amongst them - an undeniably original and reliable perspective on this topic. * Camille Marquis Bissonnette, Journal of International Criminal Justice *
The Law of Non-International Armed Conflict is an essential contribution to an area much in need of clarification. In addition to offering a comprehensive elaboration of the current law in this area, it also explores the more foundational questions that will be of interest to any general international lawyer, such as the methodology of customary law formation and the varied sources of the relevant norms. It is to be hoped that Professor Sivakumarans proposal of a new instrument to bind non-state armed groups can be taken forward, with a view to achieving greater compliance with the law in situations that all too often witness the most violent fratricidal clashes. * Lawrence Hill-Cawthorne, Australian Year Book of International Law *
This book is an almost exhaustive treatment and will probably be cited as leading the doctrine in the topic of non-international armed conflicts and armed non-state actors. * Konstantinos Mastorodimos, NILR *
...the book of our time on the law of non-international armed conflict. * Claus Kress, British Yearbook of International Law *
