The Sanremo Round Table, milestone of the activities of the International Institute of Humanitarian Law, encourages members of scientific, diplomatic, institutional and military circles from all over the world to meet informally and to examine the more burning issues concerning the promotion of, respect for and development of international humanitarian law with an eye to the future.
