Included are a retrospective examination of Canadian approaches and contributions to international law during the Yearbook’s first fifty years as well as cutting-edge analyses and commentary on a wide range of issues, such as the use of battlefield biometrics, the cultural dimensions of sustainable development, Omar Khadr’s combatancy and child-soldier status, and immunities for gross violations of international human rights.
