Self-determination — Conduct of hostilities — Occupation — Territory

This is the conclusion of the book, summarizing the key themes and tensions explored throughout it, such as the conflicts of interest that inhere the law of occupation, and the fragmentation of international law which challenges the autonomy of the law of occupation. In addition to this summary, it offers some thoughts concerning the future of the law of occupation, in light of current developments. Among other things, it mentions the intensifying globalization of international problems, algorithmic decision-making, and the extension of state control to new maritime zones and outer space as issues that the law of occupation would have to grapple with in the future.
