Abstract

This contribution looks at the ways in which the relationship between human rights law and the law of armed conflict has been portrayed. It references the metaphors and maxims that are said to help understand this relationship and suggests that, rather than looking for an overarching theory, the time has come to focus on particular contexts and consider the policy choices available and what is at stake.
