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 Principles Guiding Humanitarian Action cycle.
Under this cycle, you'll find resources such as:
- Principles guiding humanitarian action (E-Briefing)
- Results of the historical symposium on the Fundamental Principles (Video of Panel Discussion)
- Blurred Boundaries: Militaries, humanitarian action and neutrality (Video)
- Seven Tales, Seven Principles: Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Red Cross Red Crescent Fundamental Principles(Video of Panel Discussion)
- Humanitarian action and the pursuit of peace: Speech on the anniversary of the Nobel Peace Prize (Article)
