Abstract

The paper is based on the initiative by the ILC for an international legal framework for the protection of individuals in the event of disasters. It comprises a description of the broad field of disaster relief law and, following, how sovereignty and individual rights issues are situated within the current work of the ILC. In addition, the so-called IDRL Guidelines are examined in the paper. Since these non-binding international documents play a key role in the disaster relief field at present, their determinant role in the development of an accepted international legal framework for disaster victims and humanitarian relief operations is imprinted in the paper.
