ABSTRACT
AbstractThe article considers the decisions handed over by of the European Court of Human Rights in matters related to armed conflicts in the last 10 years. Called to deal with cases connected to the use of force by military and security agents during internal turmoil and civil wars, the Court treated them as episodes of terrorism and, consequently, as a matter of domestic law. Asked to decide issues related to international armed conflicts or international peace enforcement operations, the Court declined to discuss the merit, arresting its analysis to the question of jurisdiction. The recent case-law marks a significant change of perspective and seems to represent the final point of a profound re-thinking, the end of a path which steered the Court to amplify the reach of the Convention beyond its original legal space and to change the way it approaches the law of armed conflict.
