This handbook is designed to familiarize parliamentarians with international humanitarian law and to heighten their awareness of the key role they, as political leaders, can play in promoting its implementation, especially by adopting appropriate national legislation.
The work also guides parliamentarians step by step through the measures that States must take to respect and ensure respect for international humanitarian law.
"The previous edition of the handbook is available to download in Spanish and Chinese for the time being. These versions will be replaced by the new handbook (already available in French and English) as soon as the translations are available."
