Inhumane weapons convention

The question of prohibiting or restricting the use of certain conventional weapons that may be deemed to be excessively injurious or to have indiscriminate effects has been considered by the international community in various forums since the second half of the nineteenth century. In recent years, it has been dealt with under the aegis of the United Nations, the Diplomatic Conference on the Reaffirmation and Development of International Humanitarian Law Applicable in Armed Conflicts, and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
