Description: The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement consists of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (Federation), and the 183 national Red Cross or Red Crescent societies currently recognized by the ICRC and admitted as full members of the Federation. All of these organizations are legally independent from each other, but are united within the movement through common basic principles, objectives, symbols, statutes, and governing organs. The movement is voluntary and non-governmental. Its stated mission is to protect human life and health, to ensure respect for the human being, and to prevent and alleviate human suffering, without any discrimination based on nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinions. Recently, it has finally ended its dispute with Israel with the inclusion of a secular Red Crystal. The International Committee of the Red Cross has a membership of a maximum of 25 Swiss citizens and is the only institution explicitly named under International Humanitarian Law (IHL) as a controlling authority. It is a rare example of a non-governmental sovereign entity. Its sole humanitarian mission, based on the principles of impartiality, neutrality, and independence, is the protection of the life and dignity of the victims of international and internal armed conflicts.
