Your author took to heart the editors’ exhortation to understand international humanitarian law (IHL) ‘in its broadest sense (including most notably the jus in bello, humanitarian law, human rights in armed conflict and weapons control)'. What follows, outlining chronologically a series of actions by Pacific peoples and governments, fits roughly into these fields, often straddling them. Driving all the initiatives are the twin threats of other peoples’ conflicts and nuclear radiation to present and future generations of island-dwellers.
