World Humanitarian Day

Since 2003, the United Nations has recognized World Humanitarian Day on the 19th of August, in tribute to aid workers who risk their lives in humanitarian service, and to rally support for people affected by crises around the world.


In observance of this day, we’ve put together key chapters and articles in humanitarian law from across our products and books, and made them freely available for you to read throughout August.
