The Geneva Conventions & Protocols #NoCriticsJustPolitics

The Geneva Conventions are four treaties the first of which was adopted at an international conference in 1864, that set international legal standards regarding humanitarian matters, especially concerning the treatment of non – combatants and prisoners of war during war time. The Geneva Conventions are the foundation of modern humanitarian law. (1949,1977)
