INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN LAW AND LAW OF ARMED CONFLICT
21st Competition on IHL for Military Academies
The International Institute of Humanitarian Law (IIHL) will hold its Competition for Military Academies from 21 to 25 March 2022. Its main goal is to introduce Military Academy Cadets to the Law of Armed Conflict and foster international understanding between those who will shortly be joining the sisterhood and brotherhood of arms.
The Competition will be a military exercise which provides teams of 3 Officer Cadets from military academies from around the world with an early appreciation of the critical importance of operational legal issues in the single service, national and joint multi-national military operations. The issues they will be expected to consider and advise upon are based on real operations and represent current challenges and thinking.
Target audience & added value
This is not an academic mooting competition in IHL, but a uniquely military exercise designed to expose our military commanders of the future to the importance of LOAC in joint multi-national operations in a truly international environment. It will provide them with an unforgettable experience they will retain throughout their careers.
Participation quota amounts to € 2.500 per team (€ 1900 for a second team). Please note that in order to confirm the participation of one or more team, we need to receive the payment of the registration fee. You can easily do it online https://iihl.org/online-payment/ or by bank remittance to the Institute’s bank account.
The course will be run in English and reasonable language proficiency is required. There will not be simultaneous translation.
The official Certificate will be released to participants who attend the course in full (including live and self-paced sessions).
