The Institute of International Law (“Institut de droit international”), founded in 1873, is the oldest international law institution. In 1904, it was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of its action in favour of arbitration among States. It continues to assist the international community including the ILC, the ICJ and other UN organs through its resolutions on specific issues of public and private international law and contributes widely to the progressive development and codification of international law.
