This chapter deals with two issues relating to the treatment of detainees in non-international armed conflicts (NIACs): (1) the detainees’ right to information concerning the reasons for detention, and (2) the detainees’ right to notification of other rights which they can exercise whilst in detention. It aims to demonstrate the extent to which international humanitarian law as it applies to NIACs does not adequately provide for the rights of detainees to information and notification, and to explore how those rights may be further enhanced. In order to do so, Part I considers the application of Additional Protocol II in the context of providing information and notification to detainees taken in NIACs and Part II examines the extent to which the practice of providing information and notification to detainees at the point of capture may be further developed.
