Relationship between IHL and IHR
ICJ Advisory Opinion, Wall in Palestine (2004)
  • As regards ihe relationship between
    international humanitarian law and human rights
    law, there are thus three possible situations
    some rights may be exclusively matters of
    international humanitarian law others may be
    exclusively matters of human rights law yet
    others may be matters of both these branches of
    international law. In order to answer the
    question put to it, the Court will have to take
    into consideration both these branches of
    inlernational law, namely human rights law and,
    as lex specialis, international humanitarian law.

  • It is perhaps not easy to define the
    distinction between the notions of equality in
    fact and equality in law nevertheless it may be
    said that the former notion excludes the idea of
    a merely formal equality () Equality in law
    precludes discrimination of any kind whereas
    equality in fact may involve the necessity of
    different treatment in order to attain a result
    which estabilshes an equilibrium between
    different situations
