The chapter provides an overview of the rules that authorize and regulate detention in international as well as non-international armed conflicts. The focus is on international humanitarian law, although comments are also made about human rights law, which is increasingly encroaching upon the traditional remit of international humanitarian law, and which will continue to encroach as long as states are unable to agree on an adequate legal framework applicable for detention in non-international armed conflicts.
