The Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law is an academic institution formed in 1984 at the University of Lund, Sweden. The Institute is named after a distinguished Swedish diplomat, Raoul Wallenberg, in recognition of his humanitarian accomplishments in Hungary during the Second World War.
The purpose of the Institute is to promote research, training and academic education in the broad field of human rights and humanitarian law, with a basis in public international law and also drawing on other academic disciplines. The Institute's programmes also cover refugee law, international labour standards, intellectual property rights, international criminal law, democracy, and good governance, as set forth in instruments and guidelines adopted by intergovernmental organizations.
The Institute co-operates closely with the University of Lund and several other academic institutions and international organisations. The RWI participates in networks of Nordic, European and international human rights institutes and works actively with them on various human rights and international development projects. In cooperation with the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and with other institutions, the Institute organizes extensive academic and training programmes for the dissemination of human rights standards, democratic values and the rule of law, in Sweden and in several other countries.
Together with Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, the Raoul Wallenberg Institute has initiated four series of publications and publishes a number of related books and journals.

The series published an average of 1,5 volumes per year over the last 5 years.
