Abstract

 Weakened uranium-contained weapons have been used in some INTERNATIONAL CONFLICTS. However, the specific characteristics of such weapons have made the LEGITIMATE USE of them a controversial issue in international and in particular in the Humanitarian law. Whether these are considered the WMDs or conventional weapons; if the effects of their use concerns particular time and space or have later harmful consequences; and finally if the principles of the environmental effects, differentiation and caution during their use is considered in the related laws, are among issues involved in the debate. The present paper argues that the fact that scientific researchers have not reached a final result, it is not possible to conclude definitely about their harmfulness for humans. The lack of a coherent package of related laws and the diversity of the concerned institutions has added to such uncertainty.
