WEST PLAINS: International Humanitarian Law Workshop



In a world where warfare and civil strife are a daily reality for millions, International Humanitarian Law (IHL) provides a framework for protection of civilians and combatants alike. The conduct of warfare as embodied by IHL is laid out in the Geneva Conventions of 1949. The American Red Cross has a unique mandate to educate the American public about the guiding principles and framework of IHL as they apply to the protection of civilians and members of the armed forces, including prisoners of war.
