Throughout interactive presentations, Q&A sessions, and exercises based on practical cases, the Summer Course will offer participants the relevant instruments to better analyse the current conflict situations and humanitarian scenarios.

The library includes relevant international treaties and instruments of international law, academic papers, documents on the practice of States, international organizations and NGOs, which constitute useful and complementary materials to the course’s live sessions.
