Introduction

In this article we shall be looking into the institutional mechanisms in place for the promotion and protection of human rights and for the development of humanitarian practices within regional organizations. We shall depart from the concept of regional governance in order to understand the role played by regional organizations in generating and consolidating rules on human rights and on humanitarian practices. We shall take the international human rights regime, humanitarian law and humanitarianism as references for this analysis.
