The Course is developed by the Department of International Humanitarin Law and Law of Armed Conflict and is offered at specific periods yearly.

The Department is also actively involved in European funded projects in different fields such as citizenship and peace education, integration of migrant children and policy-support in the area of social integration.
Proyectos Especiales y Actividades de Capacitación para Latinoamérica
Latinoamérica conforma un amplio territorio que se extiende desde el río Bravo hasta los confines australes de América, en el que fluyen exuberantes los dones de la naturaleza, pero que concomitantemente constituye el lugar más violento del planeta. Campean en algunos de sus ámbitos acciones de violencia de distinta naturaleza y magnitud, así como tragedias migratorias, todo ello impulsado por las desigualdades sociales, las carencias económicas y otros graves problemas estructurales. Todo ello ha impuesto la necesidad de reservar a este espacio geográfico y cultural, especiales actividades académicas dirigidas a auditorios mayoritariamente latinoamericanos o referidas a cuestiones que, en el contexto de las temáticas del Instituto, pudieran resultarle de mayor especificidad.
Summer Course on IHL
The Summer Course involves practitioners, academics and experts in the fields of International Humanitarian Law, International Human Rights law, and all the other related rules governing today’s armed conflicts in a training course partly held in Geneva and in Sanremo.
Diplôme Universitaire En Droit International Humanitaire
Sur la base de la longue et fructueuse collaboration avec l’Institut de la Paix et du Développement (IdPD) de l’Université Côte d’Azur (France), l’Institut propose un Diplôme Universitaire (DU transfrontalier) en droit international humanitaire. Le DU, organisé conjointement avec l’IdPD, a été conçu pour les étudiants ainsi que pour les professionnels des organisations internationales (intergouvernementales et non gouvernementales) et des gouvernements.
Courses on International Disaster Law
The course on International Disaster Law, organised in collaboration with the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the International Disaster Law Project, the Italian Red Cross and the Roma Tre University, offers participants a unique opportunity to analyse one of today’s most important legal challenges: the prevention and management of natural and man-made disasters.
European Projects
Since 2017, the Sanremo Institute has been actively involved in European funded projects aimed at promoting citizenship and peace education, studying the level of socio-cultural integration of children with migrant background in European countries, as well as supporting and qualitatively improving the structure of social inclusion policies at different institutional levels (local, national and European).
