Chapter 2 of the book investigates the normative added value of holding armed groups to account under human rights law. Reviewing the legal frameworks of international human rights law and international humanitarian law and comparing them to social science literature on inter alia rebel governance, the chapter explains how and where human rights law is able to bring most value. It concludes that its value lies principally in the law enforcement paradigm, in particular in the regulation of everyday life under rebel control. The chapter concludes by examining the relationship between the added value of human rights law and an armed group’s control of territory.

Keywords:   normative value, human rights law, everyday life, rebel governance, control of territory
