The ICRC needs women and men working side by side to alleviate suffering and to preserve human dignity in times of war. All our positions are based in countries affected by armed conflict or other situations of violence. Please note that owing to the ICRC's working procedures and principles, in particular the principle of neutrality, the ICRC's (expatriate) staff cannot be nationals of the countries to which they are assigned. Moreover, expatriate staff cannot be sent to a country if they are from a state which is party to an ongoing conflict in that country.
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) works worldwide to provide humanitarian assistance to people affected by conflict and armed violence. We take action in response to emergencies and at the same time promote respect for international humanitarian law. We are an independent and neutral organization, and our mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949. We work closely with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and with their International Federation in order to ensure a concerted, rational and rapid humanitarian response to the needs of the victims of armed conflict or any other situation of internal violence. We direct and coordinate the international activities conducted in these situations.
