What’s new in law and case law around the world?

17 February 2016

The biannual update on national legislation and case law is an important tool for promoting the exchange of information on national measures for the implementation of international humanitarian law (IHL). In addition to a compilation of domestic laws and case law, the biannual update includes other relevant information related to regional events organized by the ICRC, to the development of national committees for the implementation of IHL and similar bodies, and to accession and ratification of IHL and other related international instruments.
