The Geneva Conventions, which are a set of international laws that protect people affected by armed conflict. These conventions include the Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War (Fourth Geneva Convention) and the Geneva Convention Relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War (Third Geneva Convention).
The High Contracting Parties undertake to allow and facilitate rapid and direct communication between the Protecting Powers, the Parties to the conflict, and the relief societies referred to in Article 26. The Protecting Powers shall have permission to import, export and retain all necessary articles for the exercise of their functions and for the fulfilment of their tasks. They shall also enjoy freedom of movement necessary for these purposes.
In addition, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees the right to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression. This includes the right to protest peacefully without fear of reprisal or interference from the government. The Canadian police force must respect these rights and ensure that any action taken against protesters is done in a manner that is consistent with the Charter.
The Canadian police officers are also advised to review the Geneva Convention 4, Articles 27-31, and ensure that they are not committing any other War Crimes against Protected Persons.

1. Lack of resources: Depending on the size and scope of the project, it may be difficult to acquire the necessary resources to complete it. This could include financial resources, personnel, materials, or technology.
2. Time constraints: Projects often have tight deadlines that can be difficult to meet if there are delays in any part of the process.
3. Unforeseen problems: Unexpected issues can arise during a project that can cause delays or require additional resources to address them.
4. Poor communication: If team members are not communicating effectively with each other, it can lead to misunderstandings and errors that can slow down progress or even derail the entire project.
5. Scope creep: As projects progress, new ideas and requirements may be added that weren’t originally planned for, which can add complexity and cost to the project.

The best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is to practice social distancing, wear a face mask when in public, wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoid touching your face, cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily, and stay home if you are feeling sick.
The Geneva Diplomatic Conference was called to revise the Fourth Hague Convention of 1907, which is an international agreement that sets out the laws and customs of war on land. The 1949 Civilian Convention was created to supplement Sections II and III of the Regulations concerning the Laws and Customs of War on Land, but it does not replace or invalidate them.
The Convention is divided into four parts. Part I contains general provisions, including definitions of the terms used in the Convention and a statement of its purpose. Part II deals with the protection of civilians in time of war, including rules on the treatment of prisoners of war and civilians, as well as measures to protect them from attack. Part III covers the protection of cultural property, while Part IV sets out procedures for settling disputes arising from the application or interpretation of the Convention. The two Annexes contain detailed regulations concerning the implementation and enforcement of the Convention.
1. Discrimination based on race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability or genetic information.
2. Harassment of any kind including sexual harassment and bullying.
3. Retaliation against individuals who report discrimination or harassment.
4. Unlawful use of drugs or alcohol in the workplace.
5. Unauthorized access to confidential information or records.
6. Unauthorized use of company property for personal gain or other improper purposes.
7. Falsification of records or documents related to the company’s business operations or financial statements.
- Violence to life and person, in particular torture, mutilations or cruelÂ treatment.
- The taking of hostages.
- Outrages upon personal dignity, in particular humiliating or degrading treatment, or adverse treatment Â founded on differences of race,Â colour, nationality, religion, beliefs, sex, birth or social status.
- The passing of sentences and the carrying out of executions with- out previous judgment pronounced by a regularly constituted court affording all the judicial guarantees recognized as indispensable byÂ civilized peoples.
The Table also shows the Articles which have been amended, and the date of each amendment.
“The persons to whom the present Convention applies are those who, at the time of its coming into force, are nationals of one of the High Contracting Parties and who are either:
(a) employed in a profession or occupation in the territory of another High Contracting Party; or
(b) employed in a profession or occupation outside the territory of any High Contracting Party but whose services are used within such territory.”
- â€œPersons protected by the Convention are those who, at a given moment and in any manner whatsoever, find themselves, in case of a conflict or occupation, in the hands of a Party to the conflict or Occupying Power of which they are not nationals.
The Convention does not provide any protection to nationals of a state that is not bound by it. This means that the rights and protections provided by the Convention do not apply to those individuals.
- â€œNationals of a neutral State who find themselves in the territory of a belligerent State, and nationals of a co-belligerent State, shall not be regarded as protected persons while the State of which they are nationals has normal diplomatic representation in the State in whose hands they are.â€
The last two clauses added by the Conference to the draft were intended to broaden the scope of the document on this particular point. The clauses addressed issues such as ensuring that all people have access to basic services and resources, and that no one is discriminated against based on their race, gender, or other characteristics. These additions were meant to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to benefit from the document’s provisions.
The main provisions of Part II are as follows:
