Sacrificial violence and targeting in International humanitarian law

Noll, Gregor LU (2008) In Law at War: The law as it was and the law as it should be p.101-112
Abstract
Drawing on the work of René Girard, his text inquires into incidental and lawful losses of civilians in the regulation of international humanitarian law as part of a symbolic order restraining violent conflict within communities. First, I inquire into central norms on targeting in IHL, explaining their internal inconsistencies. Second, I try to show that these inconsistencies can be explaining by applying Girard's theory on sacrificial violence.
