If this happens, individuals will be treated as means, and their human dignity will be violated. Thus, attacks on life in the mentioned circumstances violate the foundational value of both human rights and humanitarian law norms. Therefore, in order to discourage resorting to war and tweaking the law, depriving humanitarian guarantees of their effectiveness, a prevalent human rights law approach that acknowledges the arbitrariness and ensuing unlawfulness in those conducts is necessary. International Humanitarian Law can also be understood as violated, but even if it is not considered to be breached, an autonomous understanding of human rights law not subject to IHL is possible. Apart from the previous concerns, there is the issue of non-state uses of force. A State-centered conception of international law is inadequate to answer to reality and protect international legal goods. This is felt in jus ad bellum and jus in bello, because the impact of non-state actors cannot be dealt with properly in its light. In this regard, there are problems concerning the possibility of resorting to self-defense against non-state armed groups located in the territory of another State or in the regulation of armed conflicts in which non-state actors participate. Some of these challenges can be met with existing norms although there are gaps that call for regulation de lege ferenda. 2019-09-16T20:03:04Z 2019-09-16T20:03:04Z 2016-04 article publishedVersion 1516-0351 https://www.e-publicacoes.uerj.br/index.php/quaestioiuris/article/view/22449 https://www.e-publicacoes.uerj.br/index.php/quaestioiuris/article/view/22449/16229 http://hdl.handle.net/10818/37205 10.12957/rqi.2016.22449 eng Quaestio Iuris vol. 09, nº. 02, 2016. pp.980-1011 Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0/ openAccess application/pdf Quaestio Iuris Universidad de La Sabana Intellectum Repositorio Universidad de La Sabana
