The International Review of the Red Cross is the official publication of the International Committee of the Red Cross. It was first published in 1869 under the title “Bulletin international des Socis de secours aux militaires blesses”, and then “Bulletin international des Socis de la Croix-Rouge”.

The International Review of the Red Cross is a forum for reflection and comment and serves as a reference work on the mission and guiding principles of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. It is also a specialized journal in the field of international humanitarian law and other aspects of humanitarian endeavour.

As a chronicle of the international activities of the Movement and a record of events, the International Review of the Red Cross is a constant source of information and maintains a link between the components of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.

The International Review of the Red Cross is published every two months, in four main editions:

French: REVUE INTERNATIONALE DE LA CROIX-ROUGE (since October 1869)
English: INTERNATIONAL REVIEW OF THE RED CROSS (since April 1961)
Spanish: REVISTA INTERNACIONAL DE LA CRUZ ROJA (since January 1976)
Arabic:


(since May-June 1988)

Selected articles from the main editions have also been published in German under the title Ausz> since January 1950.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, together with the National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, form the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.

The ICRC, which gave rise to the Movement, is an independent humanitarian institution. As a neutral intermediary in the event of armed conflict or unrest it endeavours, on its own initiative or on the basis of the Geneva Conventions, to bring protection and assistance to the victims of international and non-international armed conflict and internal disturbances and tension.
