No. 94
DECLARATION ON THE RULES OF INTERNATIONAL
HUMANITARIAN LAW GOVERNING THE CONDUCT
OF HOSTILITIES IN NON-INTERNATIONAL ARMED
CONFLICTS

Adopted by the Council of the International Institute of Humanitarian Law at San Remo on 7 April 1990

INTRODUCTORY NOTE: Article 3 common to the four Geneva Conventions of 1949 (Nos. 49–52), and Protocol II of 1977 (No. 57), only marginally touch on the law governing the conduct of hostilities in non-international armed conflicts. The 14th Round Table of the San Remo Institute of Humanitarian Law, on 13–14 September 1989, examined the respective rules of international law. At the end of the session, the Round Table adopted conclusions and asked the Council to set them down in a more elaborate form. The Council, on 7 April 1990, approved conclusions and commentaries and adopted the Declaration reproduced below.
