Chapter Summary

Accepting that taking and handling detainees is a component of most peace support operations (PSOs), the aim of this chapter is to provide some principles and guidelines as to how to treat detainees at the point of capture. It identifies and translated some of the key ones into operational orders or guidelines to be applied by peacekeepers at the operational and tactical levels. The chapter addresses the treatment of detainees at the point of capture. It is divided into three parts. The first part defines the term &t;detainee&t; and addresses the legal basis for taking detainees during peace operations. The second part examines both the general and specific principles and standards that are relevant to the treatment of detainees. The third part is a checklist of principles and standards for the treatment of detainees, which could be applied by peacekeepers at operational and tactical levels.
