The program

The idea of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) is simple: even wars have laws.

Also know as the laws of war or the laws of armed conflict, IHL protects people who are not taking part in the fighting, such as civilians, wounded soldiers and prisoners of war.

The opportunity

The red cross, red crescent and red crystal emblems are protected pursuant to International Humanitarian Law (IHL). Unfortunately, they are very often misused in signs, uniforms, publications and general media. The Emblem Protection Volunteer will work to address these misuses of the emblems in Victoria by contacting organisations misusing the emblems and working with them to find an alternative solution.
