An excellent intellectual work by Dr Waseem Ahmad Qureshi, books captioned “The Use of Force in International Law”, “Just War Theory and Emerging Challenges in an Age of Terrorism” and “The Use of Force in International law” are a wonderful read. It explains how the concept of the use of force has evolved over the ages. These books exceptionally valuable for postgraduate students of law, International relations, political science and defense and strategic studies.
Dr. Waseem Ahmed Qureshi says drone attacks must follow the principles of proportionality, distinction, and necessity under humanitarian law and maintain that the use of drone attacks kills a disproportionate number of civilians, fails to distinguish civilian targets from combatants, and fails to establish an actual military necessity serving as a last resort to settle armed conflict—nor does it serve as a preemptive measure—to satisfy the jus in Bello of drone attacks.
Author Dr Waseem Qureshi holds a doctorate degree in Law. He has been Additional Advocate General Punjab and currently, he is enrolled as Advocate Supreme Court of Pakistan.
