Global International Humanitarian Law Centre

The Global International Humanitarian Law Centre of Diakonia engages in the global promotion for the respect of international humanitarian law.

We believe that through promoting respect of basic legal standards in the most challenging of circumstances we can contribute to generating an environment where people and their communities can eventually live side by side, in peace and with their basic rights fully respected.

Each context specific desk takes a broad and flexible approach to disseminating IHL with the aim to inform and support stakeholders in applying and mainstreaming IHL related issues in their respective mandates.
