The Geneva Conventions have come under assault in recent years. This chapter aims to put the current assault on the Geneva Conventions in its wider political context.

Published by: Pluto Press. The Geneva Conventions have come under assault in recent years. Critics depict them as outmoded treaties, incompatible with wars. Indeed, in an age of ‘global terror’, the Conventions often conjure up archaic images of prisoners of war and an idealistic Red Cross. The US and its allies fight brutal wars, restrict civil liberties, deny human rights and denigrate humanitarian law in the name of democracy, liberty and the good of humanity.

BR BR Looking at high-profile cases of repeated and open abuse of the Conventions, the book reveals how attempts to undermine the Geneva Conventions as incompatible with the age of 'global terror' will create a less secure and more volatile world. From normalising torture in Guantanamo, to new technical and tactical developments that challenge the standing of the conventions, the contributors reveal how even individuals in the most powerful countries face the prospect of a horrifying vulnerability.

Outrages committed during violent conflict and as part of the 'war on terror' are not only an affront to human dignity -- they also violate the Geneva Conventions. This book examines recent high-profile cases of repeated and open abuse of the Conventions. The contributors explore why these and related violations of international humanitarian law cannot be viewed as anomalies, but must be regarded as part of a pattern which is set to undermine the Geneva Conventions as a whole. The contributors argue that an international system in which there is diminishing legal restraint on the use of force means that the world will become less secure and more volatile, even for those in the most powerful countries. Individuals everywhere face the prospect of a horrifying vulnerability. This is the first scholarly yet accessible work to consider the meanings of outrages such as the normalisation of torture, as well as the worrying new normative, technical and tactical developments that challenge the purpose and standing of the Geneva Conventions.
