The article focuses on two main issues. It first addresses the applicable legal framework to detention in NIAC and, in particular, the interplay between international humanitarian law (IHL) and international human rights law; and second, present the International Committee of the Red Cross's (ICRC's) analysis of the need to strengthen the law in light of humanitarian problems observed in its field operations and the related normative weaknesses. The concluding remarks will then summarize how the international community has responded to the ICRC's analysis. Before addressing these two issues, some observations on the sources of law applicable in NlAC should be made to set the frame.
