This contribution analyses the relationship between the law of belligerent occupation and its relationship with IHRL. After first illustrating the legal basis on which one can argue that a state is required to comply with IHRL in the territory it happens to occupy, the chapter explores the extent to which IHRL has impacted on the authorities, responsibilities, and duties of an occupying power as framed by the law of occupation. It further examines the implications of the law of occupation as lex specialis for the applicability of IHRL during occupation, as well as whether adherence to IHRL standards could augment the normative powers of the occupying power.

Abstract

This contribution analyses the relationship between the law of belligerent occupation and its relationship with IHRL. After first illustrating the legal basis on which one can argue that a state is required to comply with IHRL in the territory it happens to occupy, the chapter explores the extent to which IHRL has impacted on the authorities, responsibilities, and duties of an occupying power as framed by the law of occupation. It further examines the implications of the law of occupation as lex specialis for the applicability of IHRL during occupation, as well as whether adherence to IHRL standards could augment the normative powers of the occupying power.
