Institute of International Humanitarian Affairs

The Institute of International Humanitarian Affairs (IIHA) was created at Fordham University in December 2001 to forge partnerships with relief organisations, offer rigorous academic and training courses at the graduate and undergraduate level, host symposia, and publish books relating to humanitarian affairs. The IIHA enables humanitarian workers to develop relationships with the University and the international community in New York City, in addition to being a university wide center reporting directly to the President of Fordham. With the creation of a graduate Master’s and undergraduate Minor and Major degree programmes, the Institute offers an academic base for the study and development of international health, human rights and other humanitarian issues, especially those that occur in periods of conflict.
