Product Description

A constant yet oftentimes concealed practice in war has been the use of informers and collaborators by parties to an armed conflict. Despite the prevalence of such activity, and the serious and at times fatal consequences that befall those who collaborate with an enemy, international law applicable in times of armed conflict does not squarely address the phenomenon. The recruitment, use, and treatment of informers and other collaborators is addressed only partially and at times indirectly by international humanitarian law.

In this book, Shane Darcy examines the development and application of the relevant rules and principles of the laws of armed conflict in relation to collaboration. With a primary focus on international humanitarian law as may be applicable to various forms of collaboration, the book also offers an assessment of the relevance of human rights and considers how the phenomenon of collaboration has been addressed post-conflict.

Reviews/Praise

"Shane Darcy has produced a masterly examination of the role of collaborators, informers, and others who assist the enemy in situations of armed conflict. Darcy offers a sophisticated and incisive discussion and analysis of this underexamined part of the practice of armed conflict through the lens of international law, which is sure to become the signal work on the topic." — Dr Emily Crawford, University of Sydney Law School
