Following the relative stability of the Cold War, the ICRC has been intervening since the end of the 1980s in a rapidly changing environment, marked, in particular, by "destructured conflicts". The response to these upheavals is examined from several angles: operational (Gulf War, Somalia, ex-Yugoslavia, Rwanda), doctrinal (position vis-à-vis the right to interfere and humanitarian interventions under military command), and political (need for better respect for humanitarian law, by the international community, cooperation between organizations, in particular).
