The manual further states: “According to the [1949 Geneva Convention IV], protected persons are entitled in all circumstances to respect for … their family rights”.
New Zealand’s Military Manual (1992) recalls the provisions of the 1977 Additional Protocol I and states: that “Parties to the conflict are obliged to facilitate the reunion of families dispersed as a result of armed conflicts.”
