Abstract

International humanitarian law is designed to deal with entities or countries, which are engaged in traditional conflicts between them (wars), also using traditional means and methods of fighting.

By witnessing the rise of new entities active at the international level (groups and militant organizations) which have been engaged in nonconventional and asymmetric conflicts with States or with each other, using new means and methods of fighting, as well as widening disparities of power and technological progress between countries themselves, necessitate the adaption of international humanitarian law in terms of texts and mechanisms of field application. Particlar focus on the principles of proportionality and distinction between civilians and military fighters is required.
