 In the framework of the growing cooperation with Israeli academic institutions since 2003, the ICRC Delegation in Israel, the Occupied and Autonomous Territories is focusing on enhancing International Humanitarian Law's (IHL) place within Israeli academic discourse, and raising awareness and interest in IHL amongst Israeli students of law and international relations.  


 Following the successful inauguration of the first edition of the National Competition on IHL in 2007, the Delegation is currently in the process of inviting students from a number of Israeli academic institutions to participate, train and compete in the  2nd edition   of the competition, which will take place in central Israel on  24-28 November, 2008  .  


 During the competition, participants will undergo several rounds of simulations that will not only test their knowledge of IHL, but also their ability to apply it to real-life situations. In between tests, the students will be attending training sessions conducted by international experts who will be serving as jurors of the competition. Finalist teams will be selected for the final event that will take place on 28 November and be open to the public. The winning team will be awarded a bursary to fund its participation in the international  Jean-Pictet Competition   on IHL, where, should it be accepted, it will compete in 2009.
