Flyer - Updated Commentary on the Third Geneva Convention of 1949 – New from the International Committee of the Red Cross- ref. 4434-ebook

In 2011, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and a team of renowned experts embarked on a major project: updating the Commentaries on the Geneva Conventions of 1949 and their Additional Protocols of 1977, which date back to the 1950s and 1980s respectively. The new and updated Commentaries document developments in how the Geneva Conventions and Protocols have been applied and interpreted in practice. This third volume is an article-by-article commentary on the Third Geneva Convention. It contains rules for the protection of prisoners of war who fall into enemy hands during an international armed conflict. This volume is also an essential tool for anyone working or studying in this field.

The updated Commentary on the Third Geneva Convention will be published in 2020.
