PAKISTAN’S BELLIGERENT OCCUPATION OF KASHMIR & INTERNATIONAL LAW
June L. DSouza
 
ABSTRACT
Human Rights law applies to peace time as Humanitarian Law applies to conflict scenarios. The Hague and the Fourth Geneva Convention prescribe rules for the treatment of occupied people and rights as well as duties/obligations imposed upon the belligerent/military government, legitimate government and occupied people. This paper will examine few of the multiple lacunae in those rules, as also the need for evolution in the law to provide for the ends of justice being served; not in theory but realistically.
 
KEYWORD
