Abstract

The use of Unmanned Ariel Vehicles (UAVs) for the targeted killing of suspected terrorists has raised a number of complex legal issues for scholars and practitioners in field of international law.

This paper will focus on the applicability of international humanitarian law in such situations, the characterisation of remote warfare as armed conflict, and the possibilities for the exercise of jurisdiction over war crimes.

In this context, the scope of armed conflict as a concept of international humanitarian law will be explored. In doing so, emphasis will be placed on the rules of interpretation provided for under Vienna Convention on the Law of treaties and customary international law to guide the future development of the law in relation to new forms of warfare.
