Skrypniuk Oleksandr. The constitutional and legal mechanism of implementation and protection of human rights and freedoms in war conditions: world experience and Ukraine

The article examines the national and international constitutional and legal mechanisms for the implementation and protection of human rights and freedoms in the conditions of war, which contain regulatory and institutional components. The national mechanism includes an ordered system of constitutional and legal forms of means and measures. The international legal mechanism forms a whole complex of international legal means and institutions to ensure the implementation of international legal norms in the fi eld of human rights. The latter is formed by two interrelated and mutually conditioned components international normative and legal (conventional) and international organizational and legal (institutional).

National and international mechanisms for the implementation and protection of human rights and freedoms are endowed with the ability to change and acquire diff erent dimensions and features depending on the conditions of their implementation (in peace or war). During war, the use of mechanisms depends on determining the nature of the confl ict.
