From March 8 to March 10, more than 70 students from 20 universities in Asia and the Pacific regions got together to test their knowledge of IHL, as well as their ability to apply the knowledge in practical matters. Over these intense days, law students dealt with a tough case involving a colonel accused of war crimes in a fictional armed conflict. This moot court competition was organized by the ICRC, the Hong Kong Red Cross, the University of Hong Kong, the City University of Hong Kong and the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Its aim is to spread knowledge of international humanitarian law throughout the region and beyond.
