Generating respect for the law

By International Review of the Red Cross (Author)
Published : 2016


With this issue, the Review wants to take stock of the lessons learnt in the field of influencing behavior and developing strategies for enhanced respect for the law, and, more generally, to recall the importance of taking preventive measures to avoid the loss of the lives, livelihoods and prospects of entire generations. How can we ensure that respect for human life and dignity remains a common concern shared by the opposing parties? How to generate respect for the law in armed conflict? These are the central questions that we asked authors to reflect upon in their contributions for this issue.
