Established in 1863, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has been conferred a mandate by the International community to protect and assist persons affected by armed conflict. This mandate includes the development and promotion of International Humanitarian Law (IHL), including in times of peace. In the fulfillment of this responsibility, the ICRC is active in disseminating and promoting IHL within academic circles worldwide, including in Rwanda.
