This chapter compares the scope and interpretation of the provisions of Geneva Convention III relating to prisoners of war, and sees whether the law of non-international armed conflicts includes equivalent provisions. In doing so, this chapter demonstrates that the bulk of the POW rights and protections of Convention III can be found in the law of non-international armed conflict.

Keywords: combatants; prisoners of war; common article 3; protocol II; internal armed conflicts; amnesty
