Spiritual assistance plays an important and special role in times of hardship, and especially war. Stefan Lunze studies the historical background of the protection for religious personnel in times of armed conflict. He looks at the function of military chaplains and the legal protection regime under contemporary humanitarian law. Some concrete examples serve as a background to study the neutrality of religious personnel.

The present note looks at the provisions in international humanitarian law (IHL) that protect media professionals and facilitate the exercise of their professional activity. It aims to demonstrate that the harm suffered by journalists and their teams could be significantly reduced if there were a greater respect for these laws and if they were more vigorously enforced.
