9780199588893: The International Law of Occupation

The law of occupation imposes two types of obligations on an army that seizes control of enemy land during armed conflict: obligations to respect and protect the inhabitants and their rights, and an obligation to respect the sovereign rights of the ousted government. In theory, the occupant is expected to establish an effective and impartial administration, to carefully balance its own interests against those of the inhabitants and their government, and to negotiate the occupation's early termination in a peace treaty. Although these expectations have been proven to be too high for most occupants, they nevertheless serve as yardsticks that measure the level of compliance of the occupants with international law.

This book traces the evolution of the law of occupation from its inception during the 18th century until today. It offers an assessment of the law by focusing on state practice of the various occupants and reactions thereto, and on the governing legal texts and judicial decisions. The underlying thought that informs and structures the book suggests that this body of laws has been shaped by changing conceptions about war and sovereignty, by the growing attention to human rights and the right to self-determination, as well as by changes in the balance of power among states. Because the law of occupation indirectly protects the sovereign, occupation law can be seen as the mirror-image of the law on sovereignty. Shifting perceptions on sovereign authority are therefore bound to be reflected also in the law of occupation, and vice-versa.

Review:

The first edition of he International Law of Occupation was the first book in decades that was devoted to examining the law of occupation in depth. ... Benvenisti's updated and expanded edition adds much to this underdeveloped area of scholarship by thoughtfully considering its most difficult aspects, and his work continues to stand out for its detailed analysis of the key historical events that have shaped the development of the law of occupation for more than a century. The quick arrival of the paperback edition makes it accessible to an even wider audience. * Anne-Marie Carstens, The British Yearbook of International Law *
