Privileges And Immunity Of Foreign Military Base And Personnel Under Modern International Law


  • Romela Manukyan

    () (Yerevan State UNiversity)


In case of deployment of a foreign military base in the territory of any State, a number of problematic issues arise concerning the legal status of the military base and its personnel; in particular, what privileges and immunity they have with respect to the legal system of the host country. In this article, an attempt has been made to present the main approaches to the problem in international legal practice and determine the legal nature of the immunity granted to military bases and their personnel in the framework of modern international law. Given that the study of these matters first of all need to understand what the foreign military base represents, within the framework of the article also an attempt has been made to define the concept of foreign military base.
