The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)
Overview of ICRC International Law and Policy
The Department of International Law and Policy contributes to the promotion, clarification and development of international humanitarian law (IHL). Through its expert services on IHL and other relevant norms, it supports the inclusion of these norms in relevant structures and systems. It also provides analysis on humanitarian action and legal trends to complement ongoing policy debates. It contributes to strengthening the ICRC’s humanitarian diplomacy at bilateral and multilateral levels and fosters acceptance of the ICRC’s humanitarian action and the principles and policies that guide its work.
WHAT WE DO
- ICRC legal advisers work to foster respect for and promotion of IHL. This is achieved, in particular, by delivering the legal expertise necessary to back the ICRC’s actions in its dialogue with parties to armed conflict and by influencing key players and decision-makers on IHL issues. They also contribute to reaffirming, clarifying and developing IHL.
- ICRC legal advisers furthermore provide guidance to national authorities on the domestic implementation measures needed to meet their IHL obligations; facilitate the exchange of information on national measures of implementation; provide legal advice and technical support; and assist in building national capacity on IHL. They also support the work of national committees on IHL or similar bodies established by States to further IHL implementation processes domestically.
- ICRC policy and diplomatic advisers play a key role in delivering the ICRC’s humanitarian diplomacy, using policy-making and humanitarian diplomacy to broaden political and material support for what the ICRC does and cares about. Their main role is influencing the policies and practice of important players in the diplomatic arena. This requires strong skills in networking, listening, understanding, positioning and persuading.
WHAT WE LOOK FOR
We are looking for legal advisers with strong expertise in IHL or related fields for staff positions in Geneva or in the field.
We also recruit policy advisers with a background in international relations, international law, development studies or other relevant subjects, as well as diplomatic advisers with a background in international relations, social science or equivalent.
Our positions are often filled internally by colleagues with ICRC field experience [link to generalist/Prot/first mission delegates recruitment]. Each law and policy position has distinct requirements, so please refer to the individual openings.
