(introduction...)

This chapter is divided in three parts. The first part discusses the concept of a reporting system: what it is, how it functions, its effectiveness, and what it requires in terms of human and financial resources within the framework of international organizations other than the ICRC.

The second part evaluates the characteristics that influence the success or failure of a reporting system. The third part puts forward a possible reporting system, on national measures of implementation of international humanitarian law which already have to be taken in peacetime.
