The aim of this paper is two-fold: to establish whether an obligation exists under the Geneva Conventions of 1 949 for parties to an armed conflict not of an international character to respect rules of humanitarian international law; to establish to what extent they could be so bound and if not, the degree to which they ought to be bound and for that purpose to investigate the role of the International Committee of the Red Cross, a neutral organisation, which is concerned with the theoretical and practical aspects of the problem.
