International Humanitarian Law (ihl)
As international humanitarian law deals mainly with governments and the regulation of their use of force in conflict situations, i will like advice from an international humanitarian law expert on whether a person who studies this area of law can work privately in this field without being employed by one government department or another in his country. Is it a field which can be practised within the private sector rather than the public (governmental) sector? Thank you and many regards.+3 Other Responses
