International Committee of the Red Cross


The work of the ICRC is based on the Geneva Conventions of 1949, their Additional Protocols, its Statutes and the resolutions of the International Conferences of the Red Cross and Red Crescent. The ICRC is an independent organization ensuring humanitarian protection & assistance for victims of armed conflict and other situations of violence. It takes action in response to emergencies and at the same time promotes respect for international humanitarian law & its implementation in national law. The delegation ensures that decision-makers see us as the reference for IHL related issues and neutral and independent humanitarian action.
