After 70 years of the Geneva Conventions, civilians and the wounded in warfare ‘more at risk than ever’

Seventy years ago today, the four Geneva Conventions were opened for signature, with the aim of protecting all human beings during wars and armed conflicts, especially civilians and the wounded,” said Liliane Maury Pasquier, the President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).

“Their importance should not be under-estimated, for today the civilians and the wounded who are victims of modern wars and conflicts are more at risk than ever. This 70th anniversary reminds us that the Council of Europe must do more to protect the human rights and humanitarian rights of these victims, in accordance with the letter and spirit of the Geneva Conventions.
