Home Humanitarian Diplomacy

International College of Peace Studies Humanitarian Diplomacy  Program is founded and based on the principles of humanity, impartiality, neurality and  independence of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs ( UNOCHA).

“ The principles’ centrality to the work of OCHA and other humanitarian organizations is formally enshrined in two General Assembly resolutions. The first three principles (humanity, neutrality and impartiality) are endorsed in General Assembly resolution 46/182, which was adopted in 1991. This resolution also established the role of the Emergency Relief Coordinator (ERC). General Assembly resolution 58/114 (2004) added   independence as a fourth key principle underlying humanitarian action. The General Assembly has repeatedly reaffirmed the importance of promoting and respecting these principles within the framework of humanitarian assistance.

 Commitment to the principles has also been expressed at an institutional level by many humanitarian organizations. Of particular note is the Code of Conduct for the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, and non-governmental organizations in disaster relief. The code provides a set of common standards for organizations involved in humanitarian activities, including a commitment to adhere to the humanitarian principles. More than 492 organizations have signed the Code of Conduct.2 Also of note is the Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response” United Nations resolution 46/182.

 The International College of Peace  Studies, a private-based  institution works in partnership  with  approved and recognized  networks that offers  training  tools , to those serving  in the fields of  Humanitarian Diplomacy programs.
