Institute for International Law of Peace and Armed Conflict (IFHV)

The legal situation before, during, and after humanitarian crises, its influence on people, society, and institutions, and the reactions of states, international organizations, and non-governmental organizations lie at the center of the research by the Institute for International Law of Peace and Armed Conflict.

It is among Europe’s leading academic institutions for research into such crises. Its members from the fields of law, social sciences, geosciences, and health science work in an interdisciplinary manner. Besides its research, the institute trains practitioners in humanitarian aid and thus contributes to their professionalism: in collaboration with the Network on Humanitarian Action (NOHA), it created the Joint Master’s Programme in International Humanitarian Action, involving over 20 European and international partner institutions, more than 20 years ago.
