VOL. III

examine jointly with the League of Red Cross Societies the
possibility of creating an organisation to give legal assistance
to refugees. The Resolution was:

The XVIIth International Red Cross Conference,

recommends that National Societies include in their activities,
should the necessity arise, legal and social assistance to stateless
persons, refugees and war victims,

requests the League of Red Cross Societies and the International
Committee of the Red Cross to establish a standard programme in
this field.

To implement this Resolution, the ICRC addressed, jointly
with the League of Red Cross Societies, a letter to all National
Societies. Unfortunately, only a small number of replies,
mostly negative, were received.

,Nevertheless, now that IRO is soon to cease operations, it
is increasingly urgent to contribute to any attempt to solve the
refugee problem. It was for this reason that the ICRC decided

.to send to Governments, Red Cross Societies and all interested
organisations, the message reproduced in the May Supplement 1.

(b) - Convention on Declarations 01 Death.

The United Nations decided to establish a Convention
which would enable refugees to obtain official Declarations of
Death for relatives who died during the war, and the ICRC was
invited to draft a Memorandum of its views and proposals on
this particular point. After careful examination the ICRC
responded; account was taken of its proposals in drawing up
the Convention which was established after a Conference held
recently at Lake Success, at which, unfortunately, the ICRC
was unable to be represented. Note was taken in particular
of the most important suggestion-to extend the benefit
of the Convention without discrimination to all persons
concerned.

(c) - Conference of Non-Governmental Organisations interested
in Emigration Problems.

This Conference, convoked by the United Nations, was
held at Geneva in January 1950. It allowed the ICRC once
more to draw the attention of the United Nations and of all
Organisations represented, to the necessity of taking the word
i, Refugee" in its ",idest sense. The ICRC supported proposals
tending to give refugees legal and spiritual assistance.

(d) - Relations with the International Refztgee Organisation.

IRa being the most important of those organisations which
deal with refugees, it was natural that the ICRC should fre­
quently co-operate with it in questions connected with Displaced
Persons. There were joint meetings and expert consultations.
Letters addressed by refugees, or groups of refugees, to the
ICRC were often within IRa's competence, and were at once
referred to it.

In certain countries in which IRa is not represented, the
ICRC looks after the work which would normally be done by
IRa.

3. Protection and Assistance

There are two classes of Refugees on whose behalf the ICRe
assumes functions which are -normally those of a Protecting
Power:

(a) - Refugees, whatever their nationality, who cannot or do
not wish to have the protection of their home Government.

(b) - German nationals who, while not being properly speaking
refugees, were not until recently protected by a Govern­
ment and who had no Diplomatic or Consular protection.

The ICRC was also called upon by Governments to assist
in dealing with some particularly delicate problems, as for
example, the repatriation of Polish and Jugoslav children.
