The International Committee of the Red Cross's (ICRC's) confidential approach : specific means employed by the ICRC to ensure respect for the law by State and non-State authorities : policy document / ICRC
This policy document governs the use of confidential information pertaining to the very essence of the ICRC’s mission, i.e. to ensure respect for international humanitarian law and other fundamental rules. The confidential approach is never to be construed as a line of conduct allowing violations to be committed with impunity; rather, it serves to create a space for dialogue with the authorities about observations independently established by the ICRC, within which the ICRC endeavours to persuade them to fulfil their obligations.
