International humanitarian law in the context of the GRC

It is the task of the Red Cross to disseminate the rules of international humanitarian law so that participants in armed conflicts know and can implement them in an emergency. It is also part of its mandate to demand compliance with international humanitarian law by the parties to an armed conflict.

GRC Tracing Service

The GRC Tracing Service supports people who have been separated from their loved ones by armed conflicts, disasters, flight, displacement or migration. It helps them find their loved ones and reunite families.
