A) Objectifs de l’engagement:
The National Inter-Institutional Commission on the Implementation of International Humanitarian Law and Georgia Red Cross Society jointly pledge to continue to cooperate closely to promote respect for and implementation of IHL, including dissemination.
The National Inter-Institutional Commission on the Implementation of International Humanitarian Law is composed of the representatives from the relevant ministries, the national agencies, and the Parliament of Georgia.
Since 2014, the Georgia Red Cross Society (GRCS) has been involved in the implementation process of the International Humanitarian Law National Action Plan as an observer, as has the International Committee of Red Cross. One of the most effective ways to implement IHL at the national level is to implement it according to the National Action Plan.
During armed conflict, the personnel of arms carries (armed forces, national guard, law enforcement/police bodies) has to be aware of the red cross, red crescent, red crystal emblems, designation, and legal usage. Georgia and its National Inter-Institutional Commission on the Implementation of International Humanitarian Law and Red Cross Society maintain their partnership relations in promotion, dissemination, and implementation of IHL, and to stress the importance of emblem use and protection at the national level. Therefore, the National Inter-Institutional Commission on the Implementation of International Humanitarian Law and GRCS pledge to strengthen legal mechanisms and undertake promotional and educational activities in the area of Red Cross emblem protection. The Geneva Conventions and their Additional Protocols establish that the red cross and red crescent, as well as the red crystal for State parties, are symbols protected by international law. Their use is regulated at all times, during periods of peace as well as during times of armed conflict.
