“Red Cross Principles” in Arabic
Reading time 1 min read
The Arabic version of Red Cross Principles has just been issued by the ICRC. This work, which first appeared in French in 1955 and has also been translated into English, German, Japanese and Spanish, is of fundamental importance and should, as Max Huber wrote in his preface to the French edition, be not only read but meditated upon. The author, Mr. Jean Pictet, is Vice-President of the ICRC, Director of the Henry Dunant Institute and Associate Professor at the University of Geneva.
