Research Fellow for Humanitarian Affairs | firstname.lastname@example.org
Jérémie Labbé joined IPI in August 2010 to work on humanitarian issues, including the HOPEFOR initiative, a project aimed at improving civil-military coordination in response to large-scale natural disasters. Since then, Jérémie has developed a new IPI program on humanitarian affairs, including IPI’s Humanitarian Affairs Series that provides a dedicated forum for senior humanitarian practitioners in the field to meet with the broader UN and diplomatic community in New York. His work focuses on the adaptation of the international humanitarian system to a changing world, the relevance of humanitarian principles, protection of civilians and international humanitarian law, and the relation between humanitarian action and UN integration.
Before joining IPI, Jérémie worked for several years with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), both in its headquarters in Geneva and in different field missions in India, Ethiopia, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, and Iraq. His work with the ICRC primarily focused on legal issues (international humanitarian law and human rights law), and on protection issues in relation to people deprived of freedom, the protection of civilians, and the re-establishment of family links.
Jérémie studied international public law in the University of Leiden, Netherlands, and holds a master's degree in international humanitarian law and human rights law from the Université Paris II Panthéon-Assas, France.

When Do Civil-War Parties Heed the UN?
The Security Council issued 1,557 demands to conflict parties in civil wars in the 15 years following the end of the Cold War, through its resolutions. Based on a statistical analysis of IPI’s Security Council Compliance Database, this report shows that while the levels of compliance with these demands varied, there was a slight increase in compliance over time.
