The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is an independent, neutral organization providing humanitarian protection and assistance for victims of armed conflict and other situations of violence. It acts in response to emergencies, works in protracted conflicts and other situations of violence and at the same time promotes respect for international humanitarian law (IHL) and its implementation in national law.
Brussels is home to the main institutions of the European Union (EU) – the Council of the EU, the European External Action Service (EEAS), the European Commission, the European Parliament – and to the headquarters of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). We, as the ICRC delegation in Brussels, seek to make our mandate better known and to mobilize political, diplomatic and financial support for our activities. We also seek to ensure that relevant political and military decision-makers in Western Europe view the ICRC as the main reference point for neutral, impartial and independent humanitarian action, as well as for International Humanitarian Law (IHL).https://www.icrc.org/fr
