This collection of contributions made by renowned international experts and practitioners in the field of IHL explores realities and remedies of the deprivation of liberty in armed conflict. The 41st Round Table on current issues of international humanitarian law focused on some of the fundamental themes of international humanitarian law, such as the definition and the existence of a right to detain under customary international law, detention by non-state actors and armed groups, as well as the distinction between the law applicable to detainees in international armed conflict and non-international armed conflict. The Round Table provided a forum to discuss other relevant topics including the transfer of detainees and responsibility in case of violations of detainees’ rights, particularly when they occur in multinational operations.
