Military necessity and the principle of proportionality
Sigrid Redse Johansen jobber med et PhD prosjekt frem til 2014.
Avhandlingen skrives på engelsk med tittel: "Military necessity
and the principle of proportionality: examining the function of a
military margin of appreciation".
The thesis focus on “military necessity”, which underpins the entire
International Law of Armed Conflict (LOAC). Appraisal of military
necessity is done by the military commander in the field, and may be
described as a function of the "military margin of appreciation." The
purpose of the thesis is to analyse the process of appraisal of
necessity. Furthermore; to examine to what extent the vital interests of
States in wartime outweigh humanitarian considerations.
