Activity summary:

The International Institute of Humanitarian Law is a private, independent and non-profit organisation created in 1970 whose primary and fundamental objective is to promote the application, development, teaching, and dissemination of international humanitarian law in all its dimensions and to contribute to the safeguard and respect of human rights and fundamental freedoms throughout the world.
The Institute is above all a forum favouring reflection, discussion, exchange of thoughts and experiences in the humanitarian field in search of new approaches and means to alleviate human suffering in particularly difficult situations, such as armed conflict, refugee and displacement situations.
