THE IMPLICATIONS OF CYBER CONTINGENCIES IN INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN LAW
Amity University, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh
Humanity has been the observant of various conflicts occurring within itself and so, has the International Humanitarian Law. This has become a quite considerable domain for observation, when it is to be tested how the wake of an ultimate digital revolution leading to the evolution of cyber age, social media and cybersecurity laws have lead to discover a newer set of legal institutions, which keep the equality of the sovereigns, which are inept with the cyber realm in the International Community. Liability and responsibility shifts us to consider how the IHL may turn out to be either a Public International Law or a Private International Law or a bridge between them for every human and statutory instrument, when both of the concepts become more applied and real in their presence. Pursuant to the Geneva and Hague Conventions, the cyber realm needs a more attention to regulate and identify the reachable aspect of IHL, which in the end represents individualism and representation. This inquires to discover a wider manifestation of the realm of phasing and representation-oriented privacy in the budding global cyber community, but has been so far quite limited, which must be dealt with a wider application in the IHL. The paper thus elucidates the various implications of cyber crises and revolution in various countries with a critical analysis of how these contingencies are going to change the fate and face of International Humanitarian Law with special references to various legal instruments and incidents in the cyber world.
