53rd Advanced Course on IHL (Arabic)

24-28 June 2024, Sanremo (Italy)

This one-week long Advanced Course on International Humanitarian Law (IHL) is an intensive course designed for experienced military/civilian legal advisers, military officers and those from Government or International Organisations with an in depth knowledge of IHL/LOAC. Academics and students with an interest in developing a deeper understanding of the subject area are also very welcome to attend. Given the relatively short length of the course it is assumed participants will already have a sound knowledge of IHL/LOAC principles and rules and be able to apply these in a practical context.

Topics will be covered using a plenary based approach complemented with some practical exercises designed to test the participant’s ability to find outcome oriented solutions through the application of the relevant IHL provisions. Maximum participation is encouraged since we believe the sharing of differing national and cultural experiences and approaches will aide in a better understanding of the multi-national challenge and in developing innovative and practical ways to apply both the spirit of and obligations created under IHL.
