Chapter Summary

In this chapter the author speaks on behalf of his co-recipients of the Henry Dunant Medal. The author briefs about armed conflicts such as the ones in the former Yugoslavia, in Rwanda, or in the Sudan, which had become the scene of horrific crimes, including systematic attacks on civilians and other protected persons and objects. He talks about the attack of the 27th of October that may have been directed against the presence of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Iraq, but its shock wave must have been felt throughout the Red Cross and Red Crescent world. He concludes by expressing gratitude with the wish that in spite of its vulnerability, humanity, as the most fundamental principle of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, may prevail.

Keywords: armed conflicts; Henry Dunant Medal; International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC); Red Crescent world; Yugoslavia
