International law continues to have serious implications for resistance and liberation groups.

This document provides a compilation of legal sources addressing aspects of resistance and liberation movements in public international law.
This document Resistance and Liberation Movements – A Mapping of Legal Aspects gives an overview about aspects in public international law regarding resistance and liberation movements.
