About the blog CROSS-Files

CROSS-Files is the ICRC Library and Archives – including audiovisual archives – official blog.

Its purpose is to highlight and bring out specific items or collections as a whole, and encourage researchers to explore ICRC History, IHL and humanitarian action through these collections.

It also aims at helping researchers or any person interested in ICRC, humanitarian action or IHL to walk their way through the immense number of documents at their disposal.

At some point, this blog will also welcome external contributions in order to promote the works of our visitors or to engage in historical and documentary discussions.
