International Humanitarian Law (IHL) Resource Centre
Diakonia’s International Humanitarian Law Resource Centre aims at increasing respect for and further implement international humanitarian law in Israel/Palestine, as a means to improve the humanitarian situation, and create a possibility for peace in the region. Lack of knowledge and lack of political will are usually the main reasons for not respecting international humanitarian law. Through the IHL Resource Centre, Diakonia addresses the issue of lack of knowledge and awareness to IHL.
The overriding goal of the Diakonia International Humanitarian Law (IHL) Resource Centre is to increase respect of and further implement international law, specifically international humanitarian law, in Israel and Palestine.
