'It was the best of times, it was the worst of times' : a tale of detention in time of emergency
Convergences and divergences between international human rights, international humanitarian and international criminal law
Cambridge [etc.] : Intersentia, 2018
This chapter aims to assess the impact of public emergencies on the right to personal liberty from a victim's perspective. To this end, it will tell the story of a fictional character suddenly deprived of his liberty by administrative authorities on security grounds and will compare his situation under international human rights law and humanitarian law, in the case of a situation of public emergency, of an international armed conflict and of a non-international armed conflict.
