International Humanitarian Law

  • Help Internationally

War. Prisoners. Enemy Combatants. What does it all mean?

International Humanitarian Law is everyone's concern.
International Humanitarian Law encompasses both humanitarian principles and international treaties that seek to save lives and alleviate suffering of both combatants and non-combatants during armed conflicts. Its principle legal documents are the Geneva Convention of 1949, four treaties signed by every nation in the world. International Humanitarian Law is everyone's concern. In a world where warfare and civil strife are a daily reality for millions, International Humanitarian Law provides protection for combatants and civilians alike.
