Regional delegation in Buenos Aires - ICRC Annual Report 2009

19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

From its Buenos Aires regional delegation, established in 1975, the ICRC visits security detainees in Chile and Paraguay. It also responds to situations of internal strife and social unrest, often in conjunction with the region’s National Societies, which it supports in developing the capacity to act in such situations, particularly in Brazil, Chile and Paraguay. It promotes the incorporation of IHL into national legislation and into the doctrine and training of the armed forces. Similarly, it works with police forces on the integration of human rights laws applicable to the use of force.
