Published by British Red Cross
This booklet gives general information about the protection that virtually all states in the
world have agreed shall be provided to the lives and safety of victims of armed conflict,
both civilian and military.

States that accept the Geneva Conventions and, where applicable, their Additional Protocols bind themselves to follow these essential rules.

The booklet also explains the connections between the Conventions and the Red Cross
movement, which originally promoted them.

Achieving the humanitarian aims of the Conventions depends on their key features being widely known by people in all countries – this publication is part of the British Red Cross’
contribution to that goal.
