Elearning: IHL modules now available with the IFRC

The ICRC's new interactive IHL elearning course is now available to all volunteers, staff, members and partners of National Societies and the IFRC via the IFRC's learning platform. This course is specifically designed for humanitarian practitioners and other professionals who wish to learn the basics of international humanitarian law, and do not have any prior legal knowledge.

Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons

Publication: Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons

The TPNW is the first globally applicable multilateral agreement to comprehensively prohibit nuclear weapons on the basis of IHL. This new publication contains the text of the TPNW adopted in July 2017 at the UN, and is intended to promote understanding of the TPNW's rules and to facilitate its ratification and implementation by governments.
