The Humanitarian Law Center (HLC) was founded in 1992 by Nataša Kandi as a human rights non-governmental organisation in order to document the egregious human rights violations that were then being perpetrated on a massive scale across the former Yugoslavia, in armed conflicts in Croatia, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and later in Kosovo.

In a region plagued by political manipulation of the past, HLC’s painstaking war-crimes documentation based on witness testimonials, oral history, primary records and other relevant and reliable human rights materials significantly contributes to building historical memory of the armed conflicts in the former Yugoslavia.
