  Characterisation (conflict) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Conflict of Laws, characterisation is the second stage in the procedure to resolve a lawsuit involving a foreign law element.
This is regarded as the most important and difficult problem in Conflict of Laws as trade and travel between states have become the norm and the effects of broken promises, defective goods, traffic accidents, and marital squabbles are no longer confined to the sovereign territory of one particular state or nation.
Characterising by reference to the lex causae (the law identified in the choice of law stage of the conflict process as the one to be applied to determine the case) would be problematic.

 Conflict of laws - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Conflict of Laws, or Private International Law, or International Private Law is that branch of law regulating all lawsuits involving a foreign law element where a difference in result will occur depending on which laws are applied as the lex causae.
The next step is the characterisation of the cause of action into its component legal categories which may sometimes involve an incidental question (also note the distinction between procedural and substantive laws).
In those states with an underdeveloped set of Conflict rules, decisions on jurisdiction tend to be made on an ad hoc basis, with such choice of law rules as have been developed embedded into each subject area of private law and tending to favour the application of the lex fori or local law.

The Prosecution contends that the Croat-Muslim conflict in Central Bosnia in 1993 was of an international character, due to the direct involvement of the Croatian armed forces.
On the contrary, Professor Degan said, throughout the conflict which the Prosecutor claims was international, Croatia continued supplying humanitarian assistance to Bosnia and Herzegovina, and its ports and airports were entry points for weapons destined for the Bosnian Army, in clear violation of United Nations arms embargo.
This, according to Professor Degan, means that the conflict could not have possibly been of international character since the entire region was surrounded by territory in control of the Bosnian Army, which prevented the Croatian Army from aiding the local HVO units.

 Succession (conflict) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the Conflict of Laws, the subject of succession deals with all procedural matters relevant to estates containing a "foreign element" whether that element consists of the identity of the deceased, those who may inherit or the location of property.
The relevant choice of law rules often distinguish both between the administration of the estate and the succession to it, and between the succession to movable and immovable property, albeit that many states are considering amendment so that a single law will apply to all administration and succession issues.
Out of Comity, the Conflict of Laws has adopted the civil law terminology as the standard:

While it is true that the mechanism of conflict management and conflict resolution has not been very much effective, and serious miscalculations and gross mistakes were committed by both parties involved in the conflict, it is equally true that Indian involvement in the problem made it difficult for Bangladesh to reach a solution.
The conflict resolution mechanisms used were intense negotiations and dialogue, both at track one and track two levels, and the confidence building measures taken in the CHT case where the aggrieved party's voice was heard and a substantial compromise was made by all the parties concerned.
In situations where conflict resolution is not possible, the aim should be to ensure conflict management to control the violent eruption of conflict, and thereafter to bring about conflict settlement that would involve the formulation of a short-term solution to a problem even at the risk of its recurrence in the future.

The characterisation of the Tamil Nation's striving to be responsible for its own affairs and to take its destiny in its own hands as a "Terrorist Problem" is an implicit yet nonetheless glaring denial of the dignity of the Tamil nation.

Basically there are two ways of characterisation: indirect characterisation (implicit) through action, behaviour, and words, and direct characterisation (explicit) by the narrator himself who tells the reader about a character´s qualities.
Usually a conflict develops by stages which can be analysed: a conflict arises, reaches a climax, and may be resolved at the end.
It is the "unravelling" or "untying" of the "knot" of the action, the resolution of the conflict.

The appropriate characterisation of these acts as violations of the Geneva Conventions, and as crimes against humanity, genocide, and torture, and the prosecution of these crimes are essential for the provision of an “effective response”.
Thus, while each of the rapes perpetrated in the conflicts described in Part One satisfy the ICC definition of crimes against humanity this is not necessarily the case for all of the acts of sexual violence described.
The conflict was an instrument of the genocide and the rapes an instrument of the war.

The Appeals Chamber confirmed the Trial Chamber's finding that the requirement of a nexus with the armed conflict under Article 5 of the Statute is not equivalent to Article 3 of the Statute's requirement that the acts be closely related to the armed conflict.

The role of external agents such as the British and increasingly the Irish government in the dynamic between the two blocs is significant, but is not the focus of the research which gave rise to this paper.
Furthermore, the dynamic between the two factions is polarised, characterised by binary "either/or" "Black/white" and over-generalised thinking, and where conflict arises between the two factions, the dynamic in one of symmetrical escalation.
The exclusion or marginalisation of native accounts of the native material or ideological world, and the tendency to construe the conflict in terms of the "two warring tribes" thesis essentialises the "violent nature" of the natives, and casts the colonizer in the role of neutral arbiter.

As to the latter point, however, the Defence argued that the character of the conflict would (probably) be under appeal in both judgements and, therefore, contested the Prosecution’s conclusion that, pursuant to Sub-rule 94(B), judicial notice may be taken of the issue.
The Defence further contended that the character of the conflict is controversial and submitted that the issue of judicial notice should be approached with great caution.
Finally, the Defence argued that the legal conclusion drawn from the characterisation of the conflict, which is based on an interpretation of facts, is not appropriate for judicial notice.

 Kosovo, the Roots of Conflict   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
As for the supposedly long history of ethnic conflict, Malcolm contends that there have been many battles and wars in Kosovo over the centuries, but until the last 100 years or so none of them had the character of an ethnic conflict between Albanians and Serbs.
There was ethnic-linguistic assimilation in both directions; and enough of a shared way of life was established for the Serbian colonists who arrived in Kosovo in the 1920s to feel that the long-established local Serbs were almost as foreign to them in some of their practices as the alien Albanians.
The roots of today's conflict are traced to the nineteenth-century Serbian ideology, which created a cult of the medieval battle of Kosovo as some sort of nationally-defining historical and spiritual event.

The first one is to use it as a defining characteristic of interruption and to characterise it as conflict, involving dominance and power assertion.
This characterisation probably originated in the clinical and social psychological studies in the fifties and sixties on interpersonal interactions and their relationships with personality traits and disturbances (e.g., Farina 1960).
This study employs Tannen's characterisation of overlap in its analysis of Chinese and Australian conversational styles as its data show that almost all overlaps in the conversations under study indicate the conversationalists' 'fine-grained attention' (Jefferson 1983, 1986) to and active involvement (Tannen 1984) in the conversational work.

 International Humanitarian Law and the Tadic Case
Moreover, even if the characterisation of the conflict by the Council was held not to be decisive, the conflict in Bosnia-Herzegovina in the summer of 1992 involved the federal Yugoslav army ('the JNA') to such an extent that the conflict had to be regarded as an international conflict in any event.
The Prosecutor accepted that the concept of grave breaches was normally limited to international armed conflicts (indeed, the reference in Security Council resolutions on the former Yugoslavia to grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions was one of the indications relied upon as suggesting that the conflict was of an interna-tional character).
He maintained, nevertheless, that the grave breaches provisions of the Geneva Conventions should be treated as applicable to the conflict in Bosnia-Herzegovina whatever the character of the conflict there, because the parties had accepted their applicability in an agreement concluded between them on 22 May 1992 and in a number of subsequent unilateral declarations.

In this media-saturated world of the twenty-first century, however, the task of protecting children from war is not only a matter of preserving them from physical danger but also of guiding their perceptions of the reality of war and violence in general.
The bad guys are easily identified since their point-of-view and characterisation is often nebulous and their leader is usually downright evil.
By letting our children play with such toys we implicitly condone the concept of armed conflict and, when a child pretends to shoot another dead or disposes of a score of toy soldiers, it is easy to argue that they are only playing because they are.

Conflict of Laws (sometimes called Private International Law) deals with the situation where a private legal dispute litigated in a court of the forum has an international or interstate element.
Thirdly, the rules which govern which law should apply to the resolution of the dispute in contracts, torts, property and either matrimonial proceedings or succession (and the associated personal connecting factor of domicile).
Whether the application of the relevant principles differ as between international and interstate disputes (including the role of full faith and credit), characterisation, the distinction between substance and procedure and the interpretation of the statutes of the forum, are considered in the course of dealing with the issues mentioned above.

 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2000.05.21
Put most simply, this book reveals how Tacitus characterises the individual armies and groups within them as well as showing the coherence of the personalities that inhabit the Histories: for the most part this latter group is composed of emperors but Antonius Primus also puts in an appropriate guest star role in the final chapter.
The early chapters deal with the various armies involved in the conflict, often on more than one side: no sooner had the empire been won than it was lost in 68-9.
A. demonstrates that, although other authors typically characterise an army as a unity in behaviour, mood and loyalty, Tacitus not only distinguishes between an army at one particular moment and another, but also between sub-groups, and additionally charts changes over time as the conflict wore on and circumstances changed.
