International Humanitarian Law Digital App
On the occasion of the 70th Anniversary of the Geneva Conventions this past 12 August 2019, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) launched a digital application that provides access to international humanitarian law treaties and other related documents via tablets and smartphones.
The IHL Digital App has been developed by ICRC as a tool to support the promotion of IHL worldwide, inform the overall law and policy debate, and help professionals in their humanitarian dialogues and negotiation.
Documents available through the App include:
- The Geneva Conventions and their Additional Protocols;
- ICRC's original and updated Commentaries on the Conventions and Additional Protocols;
- Rules of customary IHL.
Users can also check for state ratifications of specific IHL treaties, and all IHL treaties ratified by a particular state.
The App is multilingual, enables access to content in offline mode, and provides a quick search functionality.
