International Humanitarian Law (IHL) is the branch of international law aimed at limiting and avoiding human suffering in times of armed conflict. In this sense, IHL limits the methods and scope of war by means of universal norms, treaties and customs, which limit the effects of the armed conflict in order to protect civilians and people who are no longer participating in hostilities.
The Department of International Law plays an important role in the advancement and dissemination of IHL in the Americas, assists the Permanent Council and its Committees and member states in the preparation and negotiation of resolutions regarding the promotion and respect of international humanitarian law and other related matters. .
The Office also coordinates its activities with the International Committee of the Red Cross to support the decisions adopted by the Member States in matters of IHL. In addition, in collaboration with the ICRC, this Office organizes courses and seminars on IHL in the Americas.
