ABSTRACT
The article discusses the Geneva Conventions regarding war and humanitarian duties, on the occasion of their 60th anniversary. It notes their beneficial effect on international law. The two additions to the conventions added in 1977 are discussed, and difficulties arising in cases of civil wars and terrorism are analyzed. The many instances in which the Geneva Conventions have been adhered to are cited as evidence of their useful influence.
