Note that the commentary of the Law Commission on the draft articles of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties acknowledged that “treaties that violate human rights . e. it is almost universally recognized that the State may intervene to protect children where families are unable to do so) and, therefore, (2) these treaties, by certain of their provisions and the implications of those provisions, and by obvious omissions, conflict with the jus cogens norm requiring children to be protected from exploitation and direct or indirect use for participation in armed hostilities.
42 The most parsimonious and correct reading, it is here argued, of AP I Article 77 and AP II Article 4 is that children involved in armed conflict, regardless whether internal or international conflict, retain their civilian status and attendant special protections (though the child soldiers may be lawfully attacked by lawful belligerents who adhere to IHL during their (the children’s) direct engagement in hostilities using a proportionate response if (1) the child soldiers are posing an imminent threat to their lawful opponents and (2) where there is no alternative but to defend against them but not once the children are hors de combat): The special protections under AP I and AP II to the 1949 Geneva Conventions accorded to children engaged directly in hostilities are generally held to apply both to younger and older children.
98 Thus, IHL mentions children engaged in conflict only in terms of certain special protections owed them as children and not in terms of lawful targeting of these children (as for instance at Article 77 of AP I): Article 77: Additional Protocol I to the 1949 Geneva Conventions 3. If, in exceptional cases, despite the provisions of paragraph 2, children who have not attained the age of fifteen years take a direct part in hostilities and fall into the power of an adverse Party, they shall continue to benefit from the special protection accorded by this Article, whether or not they are prisoners of war.
