Qualification of Armed Conflict
presented by Claude Bruderlein
This module explains how international law categorizes situations of violence that rise to the level of an armed conflict, as well as some of the consequences of such a categorization. The presenter identifies what elements—such as the geographic and temporal scope of hostilities, the organization and nature of the parties, and the intensity of the fighting—are pertinent to determining whether a situation of violence amounts to an armed conflict, and if so, whether that armed conflict is international or non-international in character.
