Geneva Conventions
A series of international treaties signed by almost every nation in the world, designed to protect human rights during warfare. The conventions protect civilians and soldiers from torture and ensure that they are humanely treated. The first convention established that hospitals and other medical facilities were not to be targeted during war, and that those facilities should treat all wounded people the same. The third convention establishes that prison camps should be open to inspection by neutral countries.
