This paper studies the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)'s persistent efforts at negotiating with North Vietnamese authorities, specifically regarding the treatment of American POWs, during the period from 1965 to 1970. Based on the ICRC archives, it charts the organization's efforts to engage with North Vietnamese authorities on the issue. The centrality of the Geneva Conventions for all actors involved in the conflict is also studied. Finally, the ICRC's attempts to safeguard its principles on a political and reputational level are addressed.
