The debate surrounding the role and interpretation of international law was of central importance during the Gulf War and its aftermath. This debate reached the headlines with alleged breaches of the Geneva Convention in the treatment of prisoners of war, the damage caused by oil spillage into the Gulf, and the burning of Kuwaiti oilfields.
In November 1990, Peter Rowe assembled a team of "watchers" who each took responsibility for monitoring a particular area of international law during the Gulf War hostilities. The team included some of the most distinguished academics and practitioners in the field, and this collection brings together their analyses and conclusions. "Gulf War in International and English Law" covers a wide range of central issues, from the liability for war crimes and media coverage to the protection of the environment and the role of the United Nations.
Contributors: Hazel M. Fox, David Garratt, Christopher Greenwood, Francoise J. Hampson, Anthony H. Hudson, Shaun Lyons, Hilaire McCoubrey, Michael Meyer, Gordon Risius, Adam Roberts Fba, Peter Rowe, David Travers, Bernadette Walsh, and Marc Weller.
A co-publication with Sweet and Maxwell
