International humanitarian law -
Answers to your questions
ICRC, Geneva, 2002

This recently revamped brochure is an ideal introduction to international humanitarian law. It explores how even in war there are limits: limits on the conduct of warfare and limits on the behaviour of combatants. Its colourful design and revised content, which includes a new chapter on what international humanitarian law says about terrorism, make it accessible to all readers interested in both the origins and the modern-day application of the law.

Available from the ICRC in English, French and Spanish.
