Welcome to Mélange du Mercredi (Wednesday Mix). Each week, we highlight one of the latest and greatest in reading, film and other scholarly resources, focusing on a variety of issues pertaining to international humanitarian law. As you may know, since 2014 the Law and Policy Department of ICRC has run an annual research and debate cycle around selected themes of the International Review with the aim of generating research, new ideas and new publications. The outcomes of the cycles are composed of a series of publications and multi-media resources. They form a wealth of up-to-date resources on the selected themes. This week we take a look at the Generating Respect for the Law cycle.
Under this cycle, you'll find resources such as:
- Humanizing the laws of war – the Red Cross and the development of International Humanitarian Law (Video)
- The Additional Protocols at 40: upholding humanity in today's conflicts (Article)
- Updated Commentary brings fresh insights on continued relevance of Geneva Conventions for warfare at sea (Article)
- The role of humanitarian actors in generating respect for the law (Article)
- Old pain, new demons: Thinking torture and dignity today (Video of Panel Discussion)
