Odelo & Seatzu: Armed Forces and International Jurisdictions

Marco Odello & Francesco Seatzu have published Armed Forces and International Jurisdictions (Intersentia 2013). The table of contents is here. Here's the abstract:
Different activities conducted by armed forces and their personnel are governed by different branches of international law, in particular international humanitarian law, international criminal law and human rights law. In recent times, the growing number and jurisprudence of international jurisdictions have also addressed the activities of military personnel engaged in different scenarios, including the internal organisation of armed forces and forms of violation of different rules of international law. Relevant decisions include, for instance, the international ad hoc criminal Tribunals, special courts, and truth and reconciliation commissions, as well as human rights courts and the International Court of Justice.
