This chapter examines the nature of POW and combatant status, exploring the origins and historical evolution of combatant/POW status. The chapter looks at what combatant/POW status comprises, that is, what rules and responsibilities the status entails. The chapter looks at why the status is important, and what consequences result from denial or loss of combatant/POW designation. Finally, this chapter also examines why combatant/POW status is denied to participants in non-international armed conflicts.

Keywords:   Geneva Convention III, combatants, prisoners of war, combatant immunity, unlawful combatants
