The Humanitarian Law & Policy blog is a unique space for timely analysis and debate on international humanitarian law (IHL) issues and the policies that shape humanitarian action.

It is a place to identify trends, raise issues, consider future challenges and explore solutions as they pertain to IHL or humanitarian action.

We bring together informed academics, practitioners and others interested in engaging in serious, open-minded discussion. We complement the International Review of the Red Cross in featuring ongoing debates.
