Chapter Summary

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), after due consultation with the Secretary-General of the United Nations, took the initiative in calling a meeting which would be something between a mere consultation of experts and a conference of Government representatives: it convened a conference of Government experts. The conference was scheduled for May-June 1971. It was however preceded by another experts' conference of a more or less preparatory character: at the express request of a number of national Red Cross Societies the ICRC invited all those societies who so desired to take part in a Conference of Red Cross Experts for the Reaffirmation and Development of International Humanitarian Law Applicable in Armed Conflicts. The Conference organized its work along the following lines. After two days of general debate in plenary session, it would break up into three Commissions sitting simultaneously.
