ICRC pricing policy

In accordance with its mission statement, the ICRC is committed to promoting and strengthening humanitarian law and universal humanitarian principles. One way in which it does this is by making its resources as widely available, and inexpensive, as possible. However, because it is accountable to its donors, the ICRC has also to try to recover its production costs.

If you reside in one of the countries listed below, you qualify for a 20 per cent discount on your ICRC publication or film purchase (excluding shipping).The prices listed on this web site are before any discounts. When you order online, the system will show your discounted price during the checkout process, at the order summary screen, right before you place your order.
