IRRC No. 856
Editorial: Humanitarian law, action and policy
The International Review of the Red Cross has reached the venerable age of 135. It bears witness to the continuity of the oldest organization with an international vocation, an institution which has brought assistance and protection to countless victims of armed conflicts. Formerly the official publication of the ICRC and a chronicle of its international activities, the Review now deals with law and policy matters which are of relevance for humanitarian action in times of armed conflict.
