Henry Dunant

History of some little-known stories about the development of IHL

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is celebrating its 160th year of existence in 2023. This anniversary is an ideal opportunity to look back on certain aspects of the evolution of international humanitarian law, to highlight the role played by Henry Dunant of Geneva in the formation of this law and also to draw attention to the need to recognize the contribution of different legal cultures in the development of this law.
