The Test of Time: Are the Geneva Conventions Still Relevant?

On August 12th, the Geneva Conventions turn 70 years old. We’re using the occasion to look back at a conversation on their 68th anniversary. In this episode of Intercross the Podcast, we are joined by ICRC Deputy Legal Advisor Andrea Harrison. The first Geneva Convention was signed in 1864, the year after the founding of the ICRC. Most recently, the Geneva Conventions of 1949 were added, in part as a reaction to the tragedies of World War II. How have the content of the Geneva Conventions changed over time? Every State in the world is party to the Geneva Conventions. What does this say about their significance and importance? And 68 years after the 1949 Conventions, with the nature of conflict radically evolving, are they still relevant and can they still stand the test of time? Hosted by Tracey Begley and Niki Clark.
