Update of customary IHL database - March 2018

In March 2018, we updated the customary IHL database to include additional practice from Chad, Georgia, the Lao People's Democratic Republic, Senegal and Spain.


The database contains:

  • the 161 rules of customary IHL identified in the 2005 ICRC customary IHL study,
  • all the practice underlying that study,
  • regular updates of the study's practice part.
