Why should humanitarian practitioners have an understanding of the legal frameworks that regulate detention in armed conflict? Why does the regulation of detention in non-international armed conflicts (NIACs) and “internationalized NIACs” become more complex? Ahead of the online learning session on 15 November on detention in non-international armed conflict, we had the chance to talk to the speaker, Gabor Rona, Visiting Professor of Law at Cardozo Law School and previously the International Legal Director of Human Rights First.

"When millions of people see freedom's invitation only through the flapping canvas of a tent. When they carry their children and possessions on their backs, walking hundreds, perhaps thousands, of miles. When they and their families risk drowning, and are kept cramped in appalling detention centers and, once released, risk abuse by racists and xenophobes. There is no cause for comfort here."

If you missed United Nations Human Rights chief Zeid's powerful speech to world leaders at the UN Summit for Refugees and Migrants this week, watch it here, now.
"An epidemic of amnesia is at the heart of this moral collapse in some quarters.

Many seem to have forgotten the two world wars – what happens when fear and anger are stoked by half-truths and outright lies. A density of hatred builds up. The pin is pulled. The timer, released. And humanity's rendez-vous with the 'demon of world history' beckons again.

The bigots and deceivers, in opposing greater responsibility-sharing, promote rupture. Some of them may well be in this hall this morning. If you are here, we say to you: We will continue to name you publicly. You may soon walk away from this hall. But not from the broader judgement of "we the people", all the world's people – not from us".
