Bibliographie : p. 308-309
In the increasingly complex conflicts of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, detention has become one of the most difficult areas of operations. This chapter examines the particular difficulties faced by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) in alliance or alliance-led operations. It first examines the contexts in which detention may occur, the authorisations both internal and external for NATO forces to conduct detention operations, and then addresses the issue of the legal responsibility of NATO and the position of NATO commanders in that context.
