Geneva Convention may refer to:

Four different treaties[edit]

  • First Geneva Convention "for the Amelioration of the Condition of the Wounded and Sick in Armed Forces in the Field" (first adopted in 1864, last revision in 1949)
  • Second Geneva Convention "for the Amelioration of the Condition of Wounded, Sick and Shipwrecked Members of Armed Forces at Sea" (first adopted in 1949, successor of the 1907 Hague Convention X)
  • Third Geneva Convention "relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War" (first adopted in 1929 as the Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War, last revision in 1949) This is usually the document people are referring to when they speak of the Geneva Convention without reference to which one it is.
  • Fourth Geneva Convention "relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War" (first adopted in 1949, based on parts of the 1907 Hague Convention IV)

Three additional protocols[edit]

  • Protocol I "relating to the Protection of Victims of International Armed Conflicts" (adopted in 1977)
  • Protocol II "relating to the Protection of Victims of Non-International Armed Conflicts" (adopted in 1977)
  • Protocol III "relating to the Adoption of an Additional Distinctive Emblem" (adopted in 2005)
