Association of Humanitarian Lawyers


Hot spots -- many relate to UN unfinished business in de colonization process and many involve right to self-determination. AHL is actively encouraging the UN bodies to re-open that topic, in light of our extensive work in many of the current conflicts. AHL is presenting papers, studies, etc. on the topic at UN and many international seminars. A short list of which AHL has or is actively working on is as follows:

  • Moluccas
  • Acheh (Indonesia)
  • Kashmir
  • Sri Lanka
  • Iraq
  • Kurdish question
  • Uganda
  • Tibet

AHL is also working with other colleagues actively involved with issues in Burma, Chechnya, and Sudan.
