This chapter addresses the law applicable during multinational, or coalition, operations. States participating in multinational operations remain bound by their national and international legal obligations. If a multinational force or its members are not parties to an armed conflict, the conduct of the force is regulated by international human rights law. If the multinational force or its participating States are parties to an armed conflict, their conduct is regulated in accordance with the ‘active hostilities’ framework or ‘security operations’ framework, dependent upon the situation. The remainder of the chapter discusses the conduct of multinational operations; the use of force for the protection of others; and States’ responsibility for the conduct of their armed forces during multinational operations.
