This chapter retraces the history of international humanitarian law treaty-making, from the first IHL treaties to the present. The main IHL instruments are presented chronologically, from the Declaration of Paris (1856) all the way to the Third Additional Protocol to the 1949 Geneva Conventions (2006). For each treaty, the author provides a brief description of the context in which it was adopted.
