About the Journal
The Asia-Pacific Journal of International Humanitarian Law is a publication of the Institute of International Legal Studies-University of the Philippines Law Center (UP-IILS) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). The Journal aims to produce peer-reviewed scholarly articles and book reviews, as well as commentary on significant developments in International Law, and related fields. It has a special focus on the Asia-Pacific region, and is published once a year. We invite the submission of articles on subjects related to International Humanitarian Law, humanitarian policy or humanitarian action, provided the article has not been published or accepted elsewhere. In order to qualify for submission, an article would either need to be authored by someone from or based in the Asia-Pacific region, or alternately, be about the Asia-Pacific region.
