About the Centre

Centre for Advanced Study in International Humanitarian Law (CASH) is an esteemed research centre of Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, which is dedicated to research in the field of International Humanitarian Law (IHL). It aims to ensure that future leaders and opinion-makers understand the practical relevance of the subject of IHL and have a thorough knowledge of its basic principles. Whenever there are serious and large-scale violations of IHL, it is important to find out exactly where the problem lies rather than rushing headlong into changing the rules, especially as nowadays, this is an extremely arduous, costly and unpredictable process. Therefore, the first and foremost function is to sensitize teachers, researchers and students about the provisions of the IHL so that they may choose IHL as the focus of their future research endeavours.

IHL

 

International humanitarian law is a set of rules which seek, for humanitarian reasons, to limit the effects of armed conflict. It protects persons who are not or are no longer participating in the hostilities and restricts the means and methods of warfare. International humanitarian law is also known as the law of war or the law of armed conflict.

ICRC

 

Established in 1863, the International Committee of Red Cross (ICRC) operates worldwide, helping people affected by conflict and armed violence and promoting the laws that protect victims of war. An independent and neutral organization, its mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949. ICRC is based in Geneva, Switzerland, and has a worldwide network.
