Our new short courses in international law in armed conflict are now online.
These courses form part of our Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict. They are open to professionals – diplomats, lawyers, legal advisers, judges, NGO staff, human rights advocates, media specialists, professionals working in emergency situations, UN staff and staff from other international organizations – who want to deepen their expertise in a specific issue.
Courses – ten in total – provide participants with in-depth legal knowledge in issues like international refugee law, the classification of armed conflicts, preventing and combating terrorism, leading in the Human Rights Council, sanctions in public international law or peacebuilding in post-conflict and fragile situations.
Each course consists of five weekly classes held on Thursday or Friday (evenings or afternoons).
Applications must be submitted via an online form and need to include:

The Rule of Law in Armed Conflicts project (RULAC) is a unique online portal that identifies and classifies all situations of armed violence that amount to an armed conflict under international humanitarian law (IHL). It is primarily a legal reference source for a broad audience, including non-specialists, interested in issues surrounding the classification of armed conflicts under IHL.
This research project looked at the reactions to norms of more than 30 armed groups worldwide.
