Chapter Summary

A second conference of experts appeared indicated, and the announcement made in the final session of the Conference by the President of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) that such a conference would be organized in 1972, was received with unanimous approval and satisfaction. Both GA Resolutions favoured the continuation by the ICRC of the work which it had initiated for the reaffirmation and development of international humanitarian law applicable in armed conflicts. The first two days were spent on a general debate in plenary session. After the two days of general debate the Conference split up into four Commissions of the Whole sitting simultaneously. The subject-matter of Draft Protocol I (international armed conflicts) was divided among Commissions I (wounded, sick and shipwrecked), III (combatants and civilian population) and IV (implementation, general and final provisions). Draft Protocol II (non-international armed conflicts) was assigned in principle to Commission II.
