Justice in Wartime and Revolutions. Europe, 1795-1950 /
Justice en temps de guerre et révolutions. Europe, 1795-1950
Some 20 contributions by Belgian as well as foreign specialists treat various aspects of the work of justice in times of war and revolution, from the French revolution until 1950.
Particular attention has been given to the two world wars. Various questions and actors are addressed, such as the work of military justice during World War One, mob justice during revolutionary periods, and the significance of international law. Furthermore, the focus is on specific groups and actors such as police, children, or lawyers active in international networks. A number of contributions were devised as comparative studies.
