By avoiding the strict war/peace dichotomy, the overall book seeks to demonstrate how human rights law applies at all times. Despite theoretical and practical obstacles, ESC rights do apply in armed conflict, and both states and non-state actors have obligations in this regard. It is explained that the challenge is therefore not so much about the legal validity of ESC rights in armed conflict, but more the precise content of each individual right that must be respected, as well as the extent to which each right must also be protected and fulfilled given the maelstrom of often co-existing violence and destruction.
