Strengthening dissemination of international humanitarian law (IHL)

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 close cooperation to promote respect for and implementation of IHL, including dissemination and awareness-raising.


States, which have signed the 1949 Geneva Conventions and its Additional Protocols oblige themselves to disseminate and spread the norms related to the International Humanitarian Law both in peacetime and in a period of armed conflict. In this field, states work in cooperation with the International Committee of Red Cross and National Societies.


According to the mandate, National Societies help their governments to disseminate knowledge about International Humanitarian Law and related issues.


This is a joint pledge of Georgia (Ministry of Justice of Georgia) and Georgia Red Cross Society.
