Switzerland. Geneva. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC - CICR) and in the back the gray building of the International Labour Organization (ILO - BIT). Both building are viewed from the roof of the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG), located in the Palais des Nations. In the foreground, the United Nations Office's security guards are checking ID and cars at United Nations employees' main entrance. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is a humanitarian institution based in Geneva. State parties (signatories) to the four Geneva Conventions of 1949 and their Additional Protocols of 1977 (Protocol I, Protocol II) and 2005 have given the ICRC a mandate to protect victims of international and internal armed conflicts. The International Labour Organization (ILO) is a United Nations agency dealing with labour issues, particularly international labour standards, social protection, and work opportunities for all. 20.03.2014 © 2014 Didier Ruef
