Introductory seminar on International Humanitarian Law


Monday 29.03.21 to Wednesday 31.03.21

In the framework of the cooperation between the College of Europe and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), and in light of the most recent developments of the Common Security and Defence Policy, Professor Toni PFANNER (Université de Fribourg/Genève/Lausanne/Miami), and several legal and EU practitioners will give an Introduction to International Humanitarian Law.

The ICRC and the College of Europe have the pleasure to invite students in European Studies to follow this 2.5-day course, intended to give a general overview of International Humanitarian Law, with a particular focus on its implementation by the European Union.

The seminar will be delivered in French and one part in English without simultaneous translation. Students are therefore expected to understand both languages.

The course is open to students of the College of Europe, and also to students currently attending a postgraduate programme in European Law/Politics in Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, and border universities of France, Germany and the United Kingdom. A certificate of participation will be awarded to the participants who followed the whole programme. In order to provide you with a certificate, you agree that your presence in Webex will be monitored.

Schedule: 29, 30 & 31 March 2021 — Programme

Places in person are limited (to 60) and reserved for College of Europe students. There is also the possibility of online attendance, open to the public. Registration is required before Wednesday 24 March 2021.
