International humanitarian law: between memory and history

January 26th, 2023

The international humanitarian law "what is it" and especially "what is it for?" The editorial team of geneveMonde.ch has sought the answers for you.

We asked the question to Jacques Moreillon, former delegate and member of the ICRC Directorate between 1975 and 1988. In the interview you can find here, this living memory of the ICRC tells us about the major developments in international humanitarian law, which are inseparable from the history of the international wars that shook Europe and the world in the 20th century. He is an outstanding and fascinating speaker, especially when he shares his anecdotes about his six meetings with Nelson Mandela when the latter was a prisoner on Robben Island in South Africa.
