The 2015 Council of Delegates

The Council of Delegates in 2015 took place in a year which also saw the 32nd International Conference of the Red Cross, both events taking place in Geneva.

The 2015 Council opened on 7 December, immediately before the International Conference, which was scheduled for 8, 9, and 10 December, and following the International Federation’s General Assembly.
In years when an International Conference is convoked, an important element of the business of the Council is to propose the Draft Agenda for the Conference, and the Officers of the Conference.
In addition, the Council of Delegates had a number of issues to follow up from the Council in Sydney, including

  • Strengthening Movement coordination and cooperation
    Follow-up on Resolution 4 of the 2013 Council of Delegates
  • International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement Branding Initiative
    Follow-up on Resolution 6 of the 2013 Council of Delegates
  • Strategy for the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement
    Follow-up on Resolution 2 of the 2013 Council of Delegates
  • Implementation of the Memorandum of Understanding and Agreement on Operational Arrangements,
    dated 28 November 2005, between the Palestine Red Crescent Society and Magen David Adom in Israel
    Follow-up on Resolution 5 of the 2013 Council of Delegates
  • Promoting disability inclusion in the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement
    Follow-up on Resolution 9 of the 2013 Council of Delegates
  • Preserving the historical and cultural heritage of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement
    Follow-up on Resolution 6 of the 2011 Council of Delegates

The Draft Agenda for the Council was shared with National Societies for comments on the 5th of June. Comments may be sent to contact@standom.ch

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.
