Educating the American Public on the Rules of War.
International humanitarian law (IHL) is a set of rules that seeks—for humanitarian reasons—to limit the effects of armed conflict. IHL attempts to reconcile the reality of armed conflicts with the protection of lives and preservation of human dignity.
The American Red Cross offers several courses and programs to train policy professionals, government officials, academics, the general public and students on international humanitarian law.
Please contact our Northwest Region International Services Specialist for information on how to register for a course.
