The International Institute of Human Rights (French: Institut international des droits de l'homme, IIDH) is an association under French local law based in Strasbourg, France. It is composed of approximately 300 members (individual and collective) worldwide, including universities, researchers, and practitioners of human rights.

The IIDH was founded by René Cassin, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1968. Cassin donated the prize money for the creation of an international institute of human rights in Strasbourg. The current president is Jean-Paul Costa since 2011.
