"Neutrality, independance and impariality", essential to enable humanitarian assistance.
In Being Vulnerable, Reto Stocker, outgoing head of ICRC Afghanistan, explains how strict adherence to the principles of neutrality, independence and impartiality allowed the organization to gain the trust of Afghans and fullfill its humanitarian mandate. Mr. Stocker also looks back at the moments and events that shaped the action of his delegation between 2005 and 2012 and the operational dialogue he led with US authorities, the Talibans, the Afghan government and others on a range of critical IHL-related issues, including detention and the conduct of hostilities.
