This book attempts to consider human rights as relevant to the activities of armed forces especailly in the conduct of their in military operations. It puts the human rights perspective in the position of members of the armed forces and those with whom they will come into contact during some form of military operation.
In performing their rudimentary duties to maintain peace and security, it always gives rise to human rights issues. This book explores the application of human rights standards in this military context.
It is often, however, part of the function of armed forces to take part in armed conflict, or at least to train for such a possibility. Thus international humanitarian law will also apply alongside the human rights obligations of the State in certain circumstances. However, it takes appropriate distinction in order to consider the different nature of, and issues involved in, such conflict from both a human rights and an international humanitarian law standpoint.
