Does anyone know what the current international law and policy says concerning the legal status of, and conflict with, extraterrestrial or other non-human intelligences? Would the Geneva Conventions apply to alien invaders?
Addendum: Seeing the comments, I feel I must clarify. No, I don’t think that UFO sightings are alien visitors, nor do I believe that any contact has been made. I am referring to where international law and treaty currently stands with regards to a purely hypothetical future situation. More precisely, something like Robert J. Freitas Jr.’s analysis, only with regards to international rather than United States law.
