Egypt - ICRC Annual Report 2009

19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

The ICRC has been in Egypt, with some interruptions, since the beginning of the Second World War. It works primarily as a regional centre to promote the national implementation of IHL and its incorporation into military training and academic curricula in Egypt and elsewhere in the Arab world. The Cairo-based regional legal advisory, communication and documentation centre,working in close cooperation with the League of Arab States, plays an important role in this process. The ICRC supports the work of the Egyptian Red Crescent Society. It also seeks to visit people deprived of their freedom in Egypt.
