  • What we do

    The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) works worldwide to provide humanitarian assistance to people affected by conflict and armed violence. We take action in response to emergencies and at the same time promote respect for international humanitarian law. We are an independent and neutral organization, and our mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949. We work closely with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and with their International Federation in order to ensure a concerted, rational and rapid humanitarian response to the needs of the victims of armed conflict or any other situation of internal violence. We direct and coordinate the international activities conducted in these situations.

    Role Description

    ICRC RFL delegates aim to assist family members separated in the mist of armed conflict, other situations of violence, disasters or migration to be back into contact and reunited by:

    • Monitoring the evolution of RFL needs, the occurrence of emergency situations involving family separation and the relevance and efficiency of operational practices
    • Contributing to the planning, implementation and enhancement of operational strategies and methods to address RFL needs, including possible participation in ICRC visits to places of detention
    • Taking part in the good functioning and management of a field RFL Office / team, in particular by:
      • supervising, coaching and training the staff carrying out RFL activities
      • ensuring proper quality control and (internal) reporting
      • ensuring adequate treatment, follow-up and filing of all individual cases according to established procedures, including full respect for the consent, best interest and protection of beneficiaries
    • Maintaining operational coordination and liaison with the National Red Cross or Red Crescent Society in the country of assignment, as well as with other ICRC delegations and National Societies concerned abroad
    • Providing as needed support and advice to the National Societies engaged in RFL partnerships with the ICRC in order to strengthen their own RFL capacities (guidance, training, etc.)
    • Liaising and coordinating as needed with other national / international stakeholders addressing issues of interest for RFL, such as migration, disaster management, child protection, missing or others.
