Armed conflict has wreaked havoc on the lives of millions of civilians in recent decades. In many armed conflicts, serious violations of international humanitarian and human rights law are prevalent. Some of these breaches may even be considered genocide, war crimes, or crimes against humanity in extreme circumstances. Armed Conflict is one of the developing issues, as the repercussions of war extend well beyond battlefield dead. Armed conflict frequently results in forced migration, long-term refugee issues, and infrastructure devastation. Not only this, the institutions in the social, political, and economic realms can be permanently harmed. Human rights law, refugee law, and humanitarian law are three aspects of modern international law that aim to offer protection to war victims. Even though international humanitarian law intends to lessen the effects of war, it does not provide a comprehensive definition of what makes up an armed conflict. Its field of material application, however, the conventions in question relate to a wide range of armed conflicts and thus provide a glimpse into their legal boundaries. These devices don't provide clear criteria for this difficult concept In recent years, there has been greater attention drawn regarding humanitarian and human rights legislation, humanitarian intervention, the maintenance of peace and collective security, as well as protecting cultural property, such as humanitarian law applies, limiting the activities of warring parties and ensuring the protection and decent treatment of those who are not taking part or cannot take part in the hostilities. Humanitarian law, like international human rights law, defends people's lives and dignity by forbidding torture and cruel treatment, providing rights for those facing criminal charges, prohibiting discrimination, and establishing measures for protecting women and children. Humanitarian law governs the conduct of hostilities, the status of combatants and prisoners of war and many more. Therefore, this research paper aims to understand the Developing the Laws of Armed Conflict in International law and the growth of law after seventy years of Geneva Conventions.
