ILA statement

Peace and Justice through Law

International law is key to peace, justice and development in a globalised world. Since 1873, the ILA's constitutional objective has been "the study, clarification and development of international law, both public and private, and the furtherance of international understanding and respect for international law".

The ILA aims to:

- bring together all interested in international law worldwide, from legal and mediation practice, the judiciary, academia, business and international, governmental and non-governmental organisations;

- foster understanding of international law both generally and, particularly through its scholarship fund, among young persons across the world;

- promote greater respect for and adherence to international law.

The ILA’s resolutions and the reports of its committees and study groups inform and influence the development of international law.
