Chapter Summary

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) more recently has invested heavily in the promotion of the Red Cross principles and the protection of ICRC delegates and operations in crisis areas. This has necessarily taken the form of efforts to persuade combatants and victim populations of the legitimacy and the neutrality of the ICRC's humanitarian missions, but also includes efforts to promote humanitarian principles directly. It is with this shift and its implications for the role of the Red Cross that this chapter is primarily concerned. Of the many facets of dissemination and education worth discussion, the chapter, after a quick survey of the history of dissemination, focuses on two relatively recent developments and how they have helped to alter the ICRC's approach to dissemination: the changing face of violent conflict with its effect on dissemination theory and practice, and the integration of dissemination into humanitarian operations.

Keywords: dissemination theory; International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC); international humanitarian law; violent social conflict
