The seminar "Introduction to International Humanitarian Law of Armed Conflicts" took place for the eight time at the College of Europe, Natolin campus, from 2 to 4 April 2014. The seminar was organized with the support of the Delegation of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to the European Union.
