This chapter focuses on the status, rights, and obligations of nonstate entities within the framework of international humanitarian law. More specifically, it describes the existing rules and paradigms of international law, including some recent examples of state practices in this regard, to present a new framework for the treatment of nonstate members within an armed conflict.
