The ICRC has been operating in Argentina since the 1970s. Our work focuses on the identification of unidentified Argentine soldiers buried at Darwin Cemetery in the Falkland/Malvinas Islands. We also foster adoption and promotion of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) in the armed forces and in the academic communities, and support the National Committee for the Implementation of IHL. In addition, we cooperate with the Argentine Red Cross.

This country is covered by the regional delegation in Brazil.
