This manual is a practical tool to assist policy-makers, legislators and other stakeholders worldwide in adhering to international humanitarian law (IHL) instruments and implementing them domestically. Drawing on the ICRC Advisory Service’s 15 years of experience, the manual offers guidance to help States implement IHL and meet all their obligations under that body of law, including the repression of serious violations.
The CD version of this manual includes two databases. The database of national implementation measures provides examples of legislation and jurisprudence from countries around the world. The other database is a compilation of IHL treaties and documents showing the current status of signatures and ratifications. The CD is updated periodically for the databases.
A paper version of the manual is available here.
