The meeting covered grounds and procedures for internment, and transfers of detainees from one authority to another. This second in-depth meeting examined relevant protections drawn from a variety of international law instruments and assessed the practical implications of their application in NIAC. It also sought to identify more specific areas of protection that should be covered in any strengthening of IHL in this area. The consultation was attended by 48 experts representing 32 States.
