The Copenhagen Process was a five-year, multi-stakeholder effort to develop principles and good practices for states and international organizations that detain persons in the course of military operations in situations of non-international armed conflict. Twenty-four countries from Europe, Asia, Africa, and North and South America participated in the Copenhagen Process, and five international organizations participated as observers. The Process was conceived (in 2007) and led by the Danish Government. The principles are accompanied by a Chairman’s Commentary (not officially endorsed by the participants) that provides some additional gloss.
