Order item

For the ICRC, its partnerships with universities around the world are essential to foster respect for IHL. Through its work encouraging universities to offer courses in IHL and by giving assistance to professors who teach this subject, the ICRC reaches out to the next generation of leaders.

This concise leaflet outlines the different ways in which the ICRC works with academic circles and universities to build an environment conducive to greater respect for IHL. Today students learn the rules applicable in times of armed conflict. Tomorrow they will promote and apply them in their respective professions.
