The Geneva Conventions of August 12 1949

The Geneva Conventions of August 12 1949

Ratings: (0)|Views: 148 |Likes:
The four Geneva Conventions of 12 August 1949 are international treaties, ratified or acceded to by virtually all States. They protect the wounded and sick in armed forces in the field; wounded, sick and shipwrecked members of armed forces at sea; prisoners of war; and civilians who find themselves under the rule of a foreign power in the event of international conflict.

An article common to the four Geneva Conventions guarantees a minimum amount of protection to the victims of non-international conflicts. Pre-existing provisions were revised and supplemented, and new ones drawn up, by the Diplomatic Conference held in Geneva from 22 April to 12 August 1949. The authentic texts of the Conventions were written in English and French, and governments and National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies later arranged for translations into various other languages. At present the ICRC distributes the text of the Conventions in the languages listed below. Those interested in translations in other languages should contact the National Society concerned.
