The HD Centre’s headquarters are based in the 18th century Villa Plantamour on the shores of Lake Geneva, in Switzerland.

As well as hosting its own events, conferences, meetings and panel discussions on conflict-related issues, the HD Centre offers the Villa Plantamour as a free meeting space for the humanitarian and peace-building communities.

The beautiful 18th century building has three conference rooms which it makes available for free in order to provide organisations with a forum to hold meetings, conferences and discussions. All events hosted by the HD Centre must be organised around humanitarian as well as conflict resolution and prevention issues.
