Edited Book

Il diritto internazionale umanitario e la guerra aerea

Scritti scelti
  • Edited by:
  • Luisa Vierucci,
  • Gianni Angelucci,

This book is designed to fill a gap in Italian publications dealing with the legal issues triggered by the use of aircraft in armed conflicts. The absence of international regulations governing aerial hostilities, despite the increasing use of the same, calls for a serious reflection on the subject, offered here in the form of a collection of articles on the fundamental principles of humanitarian law and their application to the operations performed by the air forces, and more specifically to aerial bombardment. Recent legal rulings and the publication by Harvard University of Manual on International Law Applicable to Air and Missile Warfare are evidence of the need, felt at all levels, for an exhaustive work on this subject.
