Roberta Arnold, Israel Law Review [Professor Sandesh Sivakumaran] examines the genesis of this novel, interdisciplinary body of law and the way ahead, thereby contributing with a major piece of work in a field . . . that greatly needed further research.
Camille Marquis Bissonnette, Journal of International Criminal Justice This invaluable work is accordingly of great interest for those - jurists or otherwise - seeking a structured and clear overview and in-depth, yet concise, development on the rules and challenges of the law of non-international armed conflicts.

Lawrence Hill-Cawthorne, Australian Year Book of International Law The Law of Non-International Armed Conflict is an essential contribution to an area much in need of clarification. In addition to offering a comprehensive elaboration of the current law in this area, it also explores the more foundational questions that will be of interest to any general international lawyer, such as the methodology of customary law formation and the varied sources of the relevant norms. It is to be hoped that Professor Sivakumarans proposal
of a new instrument to bind non-state armed groups can be taken forward, with a view to achieving greater compliance with the law in situations that all too often witness the most violent fratricidal clashes.
Konstantinos Mastorodimos, NILR This book is an almost exhaustive treatment and will probably be cited as leading the doctrine in the topic of non-international armed conflicts and armed non-state actors.
Claus Kre, British Yearbook of International Law ...the book of our time on the law of non-international armed conflict.
