Intended to challenge many pre-conceived ideas about the factors that influence the behaviour of combatants, the study examines the various strategies that the ICRC pursues, especially in the area of communication, to ensure that humanitarian law is better known, accepted and respected. Importantly, in this time of intense public debate about the behaviour of the military in contexts such as Iraq and Afghanistan, this study helps to define the future direction of preventive activities.
