International Humanitarian Law (IHL), which seeks to limit the effects of armed conflict and to protect civilians and others not taking part in hostilities, is a cornerstone of modern international law. The EU Guidelines underline the Union's commitment to promoting compliance with IHL and set out the main tools at its disposal. The Council Working Group on Public International Law (COJUR) has prepared the second annual report on the action taken by the European Union to implement the Guidelines. The reference period is from July 2017 to December 2018. It will be available in English and French.
In this context, the Report on the implementation of pledges submitted by the EU and EUMS to the 32nd session of the International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent is also available online:
