Humanitarian principles, humanitarian policies and international law provide a framework
and source of guidance for humanitarian negotiations with armed groups. They can be potent
tools for humanitarian negotiators to: (i) define boundaries within which to seek agreement;
(ii) assist in generating options for consideration during negotiations; (iii) provide reference
benchmarks for evaluation of options and monitoring implementation; (iv) frame the legal
obligations of armed groups; and (v) provide incentives for armed groups to negotiate.

This chapter briefly reviews humanitarian principles, humanitarian policies, and relevant
provisions of international law, and suggests practical ways in which they can guide humanitarian
negotiations with armed groups.
