Practice Relating to Rule 142. Instruction in International Humanitarian Law within Armed Forces
Azerbaijan’s Law concerning the Protection of Civilian Persons and the Rights of Prisoners of War (1995) states:
The appropriate authorities and governmental bodies of the Azerbaijan Republic ensure that all the citizens learn the provisions of this law on civil defence and ensure the preparation of military servicemen of all categories within the framework of training programmes.
If the Azerbaijan Republic is one of the parties to the conflict, the necessary instruction is given to the civilian population in such a conflict area and to the personnel staff of the Armed Forces of the Azerbaijan Republic involved in the solution of this conflict.
