How can universities present the humanitarian challenges of today in their courses on international law and relations, political science and humanitarian work? How can lecturers engage students in the classroom around the serious humanitarian issues, while covering sensitive topics appropriately? This series has been designed to answer those questions.
Created by the ICRC to support the teaching of international humanitarian law, it provides short, thematic workshops that focus on acute humanitarian issues in contemporary armed conflicts. It can be adapted for use in any course and combines different methodologies and tools, including videos, brainstorming exercises, quizzes, roleplays, presentations, group work and case studies.
Currently, our ready-to-use workshops series includes:
- protection of health care in armed conflict
- sexual violence in armed conflict
- principles guiding humanitarian action
