Who are we?

We are a group of academics and practitioners on international humanitarian law and international human rights law currently developing a set of recommendations on IHL addressed to the European Union within the framework of the EU-funded project Atlas.

The Recommendations are being prepared by a working group in international humanitarian law and international human rights law led by Prof. Hélène Tigroudja and Dr. Ludovic Hennebel, assisted for the explanatory report by David Restrepo Amariles.

The working group led by Prof. Hélène Tigroudja and Dr. Ludovic Hennebel is complemented by a group of academics and international experts who will take part in a round-table in Brussels on October 20, 2010, with the aim of discussing and enhancing the existing recommendations. We hope this synergy of academics and experts will contribute to shed a light on the current challenges faced by the European Union in implementing and promoting IHL.
