#war and crime#books

The restriction of specific means and methods of warfare is the main subject of the Hague Conventions, which were adopted in 1899 and 1907. Since then, a number of further related treaties have been ratified. Contrarily, the Geneva Convention of 1864 and later Geneva Conventions, particularly the four Geneva Conventions of 1949 and the two Geneva Conventions of 1977. The concept of war and crime emerged particularly at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries, when international humanitarian law, also known as the law of armed conflict, was codified, even though the prohibition of specific conduct in the conduct of armed conflict can be traced back many centuries.
