This study examines, analyzes and determines the legitimacy in international law of the denial by nation states of human rights to aliens and minorities by means of detention and/or internment of individuals or groups deemed to represent a threat to national security. Analysis of the domestic policies of certain states will determine to what extent they have modified their practices to comply with contemporary developments in international rights law. The method of research has involved an in-depth study and analysis of documents and all international, regional, bilateral and multilateral agreements relating to human rights legislation. Nation states analyzed include the USSR, China, Iran, Chile, Israel, South Africa, and Northern Ireland.
