This important work contains all the texts that serve as a basis for the ICRC, the International Federation and national Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. Included are: the Fundamental Principles of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement; major treaties and other basic instruments that constitute international humanitarian law; the main policies, strategies and plans of action that guide the activities of the Movement's components; and, a selection of important resolutions adopted during the Movement's statutory meetings.
Updated periodically, the handbook is an essential support tool for the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and a valuable guide for anyone interested in international humanitarian work.
