The Commission 

During the 32nd International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent elected the five National Society Members to the Standing Commission for the next four years, until the close of the 33rd Conference in 2019.

In addition to the elected members, there are four ex officio members – the Presidents of the International Committee of the Red Cross and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, Dr Peter Maurer and Mr Tadateru Konoe, the Deputy Director General of the ICRC; Mr Balthasar Staehelin, and the Secretary General of the International Federation, Mr Elhadj As Sy.

I dream of a Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement that has global moral authority and can call the attention of the world to humanitarian issues of concern, a Movement, which independently chooses which issues to focus on.

Henry Dunant
