Working for the ICRC: armed and security forces delegate

28 January 2016

The ICRC's armed and security forces delegates (known as "FAS delegates" from the French acronym "forces armées et de sécurité") are at the heart of our humanitarian action. They maintain dialogue between the ICRC and all arms bearers, in order to ensure that we can help the victims of conflict under acceptable security conditions. Compliance with the law of war and the essential elements of international human rights law is another central aspect of their work. This applies to contacts with regular armed forces, the police, irregular forces and non-State groups.
