The Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law is an independent academic institution, founded in 1984 at the Law Faculty at Lund University in Sweden. It is named after Raoul Wallenberg, a Swedish diplomat, in order to pay homage to his well-known humanitarian work in Hungary at the end of the Second World War.

In 2011, the Raoul Wallenberg Institute implemented its first blended learning course, building on experiences from the wide range of human rights capacity development programmes that RWI has implemented in different parts of the world over the last decade.

This site aims to provide open and free access to learning material to our courses.
