IECAH is leading the “Evaluation of the prevention and influence work” of the Delegation of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Peru. This work is carried out together with colleagues from Artival Research and focuses on the analysis of the work of the Regional Delegation of the ICRC, which in recent years has promoted prevention and influence on various relevant actors.
As part of the activities of the Regional Delegation of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Lima (hereinafter the Delegation), in recent years the work of prevention and influence on various relevant actors has been promoted, with the aim of fostering a suitable environment for the defense of international humanitarian law (IHL), international law governing the rules of law enforcement (including international human rights law) and the use of force. The work of prevention and the tasks of influence are transversal to all of the Delegation’s actions and have a significant impact in the areas of protection, guaranteeing humanitarian access and working with certain groups particularly affected by the humanitarian consequences of violence.
This work has had a certain impact at the regional level and progress has been made in Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia through the adoption of legal instruments at various levels and other measures, which have been adapted to a highly variable and particularly complex political, economic, social and security context that poses new challenges for the ICRC’s work.
