About this item

In these revised papers from a conference held in Australia, international contributors in international law, government agencies, and NGOs consider the applications of international humanitarian and human rights law when dealing with the detention of non-state actors in armed conflict. Some areas discussed are detention standards in non-international armed conflict, and detention and release of non-state actors under the Geneva Convention. Case studies analyze Iraq 2004-2008, Australian detention operations in Afghanistan, detention in British international military operations, and US detention of terrorists in the 21st century. The book examines guidelines from the United Nations and the Copenhagen Process principles, and offers recommendations for future laws to address the detention of non-state actors engaged in hostilities. It contains a glossary of acronyms, plus 10 pages of appendices offering Geneva Convention and Red Cross documents. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
