Title:International law and the Nigerian civil war: a focus on the International Observer Team
Author:Mosugu, S.E.
Periodical:The Nigerian Law Journal
Geographic term:Nigeria
law of war
Abstract:This paper does not discuss genocide or starvation but focuses on the role of the International Observer Team in so far as it relates to the rules of warfare and in so far as the Team served as an instrument of international law in regulating the conduct of the Nigerian civil war. Why was the International Observer Team invited? Is there a precedent in international law and relations for such an action? Was the Team's presence mandatory by international law? Did the Team serve any useful purpose? Has the international law of war any relevance to Nigerian (or any) civil war at all? These questions are discussed in the article. Ref.
