On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the entry into force of the 1977 Additional Protocols to the 1949 Geneva Conventions, you are invited to attend a discussion with several members of the delegation from the United States that participated in the negotiations of the Additional Protocols. The purpose of the event is to celebrate and share the spirit, intent, and letter of the articles that comprise the Additional Protocols, and to reassert their modern relevance in a world that remains engaged in numerous armed conflicts. ICRC's Chief Legal Advisor and Head of the Legal Division in Geneva, Switzerland, Dr. Knut Dörmann, will moderate the session.


  • Ambassador George Aldrich
  • Mr. Ronald Bettauer
