A Prisoner of War (POW) is someone who is captured and imprisoned by an enemy power during a time of conflict or war. The Geneva Convention in 1949 defined who was to be considered a POW and determined how they were to be treated. The policies brought forth by the Geneva Convention were based on the international humanitarian law, or laws of war.
