International human rights law and international humanitarian law may initially seem like separate legal systems with different principles and rules. However, this article explores the potential conflicts and challenges that arise when both IHL and IHRL are applied and implemented simultaneously. By examining how these laws are used in different jurisdictions and evaluating their effectiveness and limitations in addressing human rights abuses during armed conflicts, it becomes clear that the best approach is to use both bodies of law in harmony. This ensures the protection of individuals in such situations by allowing the laws to support and reinforce each other.
