The concept that certain objects and persons may be legitimately attacked during armed conflicts has been well recognised and developed through the history of warfare. This book explores the relationship between international law and targeting practice in determining whether an object is a lawful military target. By examining both the interpretation and its post-ratification application this book provides a comprehensive analysis of the definition of military objective adopted in 1977 Additional Protocol I to the four 1949 Geneva Conventions and its use in practice. Tackling topical issues such as the targeting of TV and radio stations or cyber targets, Agnieszka Jachec-Neale analyses the concept of military objective within the context of both modern military doctrine and the major coalition operations which have been undertaken since it was formally defined. This monograph will be of great interest to students and scholars of international law and the law of armed conflict, as well as security studies and international relations.Rule 23 AMW Manual, op. cit. n 6, Rule 1(y) refers to a definition of military objective as such, whereas Rule 22(a) ... 39 Air Force Operations and the Law: A Guide for Air, Space and Cyber Forces, 2nd edn, US Air Force, The Judge ... 41 AMW Manual, op. cit. n 6, Commentary, para 1 at 110. ...
