ILPI is an independent institute focusing on good governance, peace and conflict, and international law. Our approach to solving global challenges is based on the integration of law and social sciences and on bridging the gap between academia and politics. We provide research, analysis, policy advice, process support and training to clients ranging from private companies and institutions to governments and international organizations.
The legal setup of International Law and Policy Institute is based on two main pillars namely ILPI as a consultancy company and ILPI as a research and outreach institute. In addition, ILPI can draw upon the capacity and competence of the attorneys at the independent ILPI LAW company.
