by Ajshal


nternational Humanitarian Law (IHL) is a set of rules which seeks, for humanitarian reasons, to limit the effects of armed conflict. It protects the 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’.

The Geneva Conventions of 1949 and their Additional Protocols of 1977 require the State Parties to disseminate the content of these humanitarian treaties as widely as possible in their respective countries. Of course, their inclusion in the military instructions is indispensable to ensure their implementation in the times of armed conflict. However, it is equally important to promote the knowledge of Humanitarian Law among those whom it is intended to protect – the civilian population as well as among those who have to apply it. At the same time, political leaders policy planners and the decision-makers must also be familiar with the law so that they are aware of its relevance, realism and mode of operation, if and when a conflict breaks out.

The subject of International Humanitarian Law has assumed immense significance in India during the last decade or so and it is offering newer avenues for the law graduates in the Twenty First Century. Therefore, to ensure its respect and also to promote its development, it is an essential task to include International Humanitarian Law as a subject at academic level. At the same time it is need of the hour to create awareness and interest among the students so that they can choose International Humanitarian Law for their future research and to sensitize general public about the provisions of the IHL. Centre for Advanced Study in International Humanitarian Law (CASH)established at Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Punjab at Patiala has taken a number of steps to achieve in the South Asian region.


Due primarily to efforts of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Regional Delegation, New Delhi, Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Punjab has established in a short span of one and half year a Center for Advanced Study in International Humanitarian Law (CASH) with the sole aim of promoting teaching and research in the area of IHL.
