Over the past 150 years, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has been one of the main drivers of progressive development in international humanitarian law, whilst assuming various roles in the humanization of the laws of war. With select contributions from international experts, this book critically assesses the ICRC's unique influence in international norm creation. It provides a detailed analysis of the workings of the International Red Cross, Red Crescent Movement and ICRC by addressing the milestone achievements as well as the failures, shortcomings and controversies over time. Crucially, the contributions highlight the lessons to be learnt for future challenges in the development of international humanitarian law. This book will be of particular interest to scholars and students of international law, but also to practitioners working in the field of international humanitarian law at both governmental and non-governmental organizations.

This book provides a key reference on the role of the Commonwealth and its member states in relation to international humanitarian law (IHL). It provides insights in the implementation of IHL in Commonwealth states and, particularly, the challenges faced by small states.

It expounds on the work of the Movement, including the role of National Societies, the International Humanitarian Fact-Finding Commission, and the development of international disaster response law, rules and regulation.

HRH Princess Margriet of the Netherlands has made her mark in the annals of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. In this anthology prominent members of the world community and global experts and practitioners come together to pay tribute to Princess Margriet for her decades of dedicated service to the Movement and the Netherlands Red Cross Society. This tribute takes place on the occasion of the end of her eight-year tenure as Chair of the Standing Commission of the Red Cross and Red Crescent. Under the Princess's guidance, the Standing Commission has come to play a strong and unifying role in the Movement. This unique collection of scholarly and inspirational essays offers a wealth of information on the constituent components and statutory bodies of the Movement and contemplates its mission to help victims and improve the lives of vulnerable people. It addresses the humanitarian concerns and challenges of our time. The anthology further provides a unique forum for the current debates on the application and development of international humanitarian law.

Making the Voice of Humanity Heard is essential and accessible reading for anyone interested in the daunting tasks and fundamental role of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement as well as the contemporary threats and challenges to humanitarian assistance and international humanitarian law.

Humanitarians are required to be impartial, independent, professionally competent and focused only on preventing and alleviating human suffering. It can be hard living up to these principles when others do not share them, while persuading political and military authorities and non-state actors to let an agency assist on the ground requires savvy ethical skills. Getting first to a conflict or natural catastrophe is only the beginning, as aid workers are usually and immediately presented with practical and moral questions about what to do next. For example, when does working closely with a warring party or an immoral regime move from practical cooperation to complicity in human rights violations? Should one operate in camps for displaced people and refugees if they are effectively places of internment? Do humanitarian agencies inadvertently encourage ethnic cleansing by always being ready to 'mop-up' the consequences of scorched earth warfare? This book has been written to help humanitarians assess and respond to these and other ethical dilemmas.
