dc.description.abstractI have been asked to provide a brief introduction to the Geneva Conventions' and their applicability to the "War on Terror" that was declared by the United States government after the September 11, 2001 attacks against the World Trade Center in New York City.2 I will do so in Part I by first discussing the situations in which the Geneva Conventions, especially the Third and Fourth Conventions apply. After the applicability of the Geneva Conventions has been established, I will then describe the various categories of persons that each convention establishes and the rights to which each such category of person is entitled. Part II will examine how, in cases of doubt, a determination of a captive's status is made. Lastly, Part III will consider some of the specific problems that have arisen in the application of the Geneva Conventions to the "War on Terror."
