Our governance

Founded in 1982, HI is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation with no political or religious affiliations. It forms a network made up of a Federation, eight national associations, and the HI Institute on Humanitarian Action. Each of these ten legal entities is managed by its own dedicated board of trustees.

Roles of the different entities within the network

The Federation is responsible for managing the international network and implementing our social missions in the countries where HI works.

The eight national associations are involved in the federal governance mechanisms, as well as in drawing up and monitoring federal strategy. They also have additional, distinct and complementary remits. On the one hand they support the Federation’s work to mobilise public opinion. On the other, they play a vital role in raising institutional and private funds to implement the shared social mission.

Finally, the HI Institute on Humanitarian Action is the guarantor of the ethical framework underpinning HI’s work.
