The International Law of Peace and Security
Series Editor: Nigel White, University of Nottingham, UK
The focus of this four volume series is on the law of peace and
how international law underpins and helps to achieve the conditions
of peace and security between states.
In times of peace the main fear is of sudden attack, with
current concern directed to weapons of mass destruction and
terrorism. The selected essays consider the applicability of a
range of laws such as anti-terrorist laws, arms control laws and
measures to prohibit the use of force. In post-conflict situations
where peace is usually restored with the involvement of
international actors, the articles reveal a whole host of legal
issues in connection with the applicability of human rights law
within unstable post-conflict states, as well as the principles
governing international intervention and involvement. A thread that
runs through all the areas addressed in this series is the role,
function and importance of the Security Council as principal
guarantor and guardian of international peace and security.
This four volume series, which focuses on international laws
concerning peace and security, presents a selection of important
articles on key issues written by leading academics and is an
invaluable resource for academics in the field of international law
and political science.
