Abstract

<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>The debate about the simultaneous applicability of international humanitarian law and human rights law also affects human rights treaty bodies. The article first considers the difficulty for a human rights body in determining whether international humanitarian law is applicable; second, it examines the problems in practice in applying the<jats:italic>lex specialis</jats:italic>doctrine and the question of derogation in this particular context. The author finally outlines the impact of the debate as to the extent of extraterritorial applicability of human rights law.</jats:p><jats:p>: : : : : : :</jats:p>
