"Developments in International Law and Policy: Political Violence and the International Community" considers how the practice of the international community responding to certain forms of extreme political violence has influenced the international law and international policy perspective. It reviews the accumulating practice of the international community rejecting and condemning civil conflict and coups d'etat, which up to now has not been systematically analyzed, and seeks to explore what changes it evidences in international policy, and/or in the relationship between political violence and international law.
