Abstract

Civil society has become an important participant in today’s multilateral treaty-making, thanks in large part to the considerable significance States now accord its work. This is particularly true in the field of international humanitarian law, where the interest of civil society has traditionally been represented by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) — an organization that, according to its Statutes adopted by States, works towards the creation of international humanitarian treaties. In recent years, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) likewise have come to perform similar tasks.
