The focus of this four volume series is on the law of peace and how international law underpins and helps to achieve the conditions of peace and security between states. In times of peace the main fear is of sudden attack, with current concern directed to weapons of mass destruction and terrorism. The selected essays consider the applicability of a range of laws such as anti-terrorist laws, arms control laws and measures to prohibit the use of force. In post-conflict situations where peace is usually restored with the involvement of international actors, the articles reveal a whole host of legal issues in connection with the applicability of human rights law within unstable post-conflict states, as well as the principles governing international intervention and involvement. A thread that runs through all the areas addressed in this series is the role, function and importance of the Security Council as principal guarantor and guardian of international peace and security. This four volume series, which focuses on international laws concerning peace and security, presents a selection of important articles on key issues written by leading academics and is an invaluable resource for academics in the field of international law and political science
