Update of customary IHL database - December 2017

In December 2017, we updated the customary IHL database to include additional practice from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Switzerland.


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.
