Geneva Summer Schools: inaugural lecture

CHALLENGES FACING HUMANITARIAN ACTION

This Inaugural Conference of the Geneva Summer Schools 2013 is organised in the framework of the 150th anniversary of the ICRC, on the occasion of the commemoration of the Battle of Solferino (24 June 1859), that led Henry Dunant to write his book: A Memory of Solferino. Horrified by the suffering of wounded soldiers left on the battlefield, Dunant set about a movement that led to the adoption of the Geneva Conventions and the creation of the International Red Cross.
