The Concord Center was established to promote the integration of international law into the laws of the State of Israel and Israeli society at large. The Center is home to extensive research activities and hosts conferences and workshops whose goal is to raise awareness of new developments in the field of human rights and humanitarian law, and implementing them in the discourse among policymakers in Israel. The Center also works to achieve this goal through participating in legal procedures as amicus curiae. The Center is guided in full partnership by leading experts in international law, from Israel and abroad.
