Previous description of ILPI:
ILPI was an independent institute focusing on good governance, peace and conflict, and international law. Our approach was to solving global challenges based on the integration of law and social sciences and on bridging the gap between academia and politics. ILPI provided 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 was based on two main pillars namely ILPI as a consultancy company and ILPI as a research and outreach institute. In addition, ILPI drew upon the capacity and competence of the attorneys at the independent ILPI LAW company. ILPI had both in-depth knowledge within these specific fields, as well as the adequate composition of staff to work with cross-cutting and interrelated areas and themes. The diverse and competent ILPI team consisted of 30 full-time staff and over 30 associate international advisors. The team included people from a range of professional backgrounds with a particular emphasis on law and political science, and had broad language skills (Amharic, Arabic, German, French, Kiswahili, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, among others). In addition, ILPI had extensive knowledge and experience from a wide range of countries including Afghanistan, Angola, the Balkans, Burma, Democratic Republic of Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Haiti, Iraq, Kenya, Liberia, Libya, Nigeria, the Palestinian Territories, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Sudan, Sri Lanka, Syria, Tanzania, Uganda, and Yemen.
ILPI was committed to make a difference in international law and policy processes with a mission to provide the best technical and operational solutions, and to be a preferred long-term trusted partner.
