Correspondents' Reports is compiled and edited by Tim McCormack with the excellent assistance of James Ellis, primarily from information provided to the YIHL by its correspondents but also drawing on other sources. The section does not purport to be a fully inclusive compilation of all international humanitarian law-related developments in every State, but represents a selection of developments during the calendar year 2010 that have come to the Yearbook's attention. Legal developments from early 2010 that were noted in Volume 12 of the YIHL are not repeated here. Readers are thus advised to consult this section in conjunction with Correspondents' Reports in Volume 12. We apologise for this inconvenience. Further, some 2009 humanitarian law-related developments came to our attention after Volume 12 went to press and could not be noted there. For the sake of completeness, we have included them here. Reference is also included to a number of legal developments which are not strictly-speaking related to IHL but which are nonetheless interesting and relevant for our readers, in particular relating to justice issues, jurisdictional questions, jus ad bellum, State security, human rights, refugees and internally displaced persons, and terrorism. Where citations or dates or other details have not been provided, they were not available or obtainable. The YIHL is actively seeking new correspondents, particularly in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Interested persons or anyone who is willing to contribute information should contact the Reports Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
