Myriam Haddad follows our online Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict while working as Legal Adviser at the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Libya.
In this position, she focuses on the promotion and dissemination of international humanitarian law and international human rights law amongst various audiences, including academic circles and the national Red Crescent Society. She also provides guidance on the applicable national and international legal frameworks in relation to various legal issues.
As a legal advisor, I believe this programme will help me to expand my knowledge in the field of international law in armed conflict and to engage in-deep legal discussions with key interlocutors.
I particularly enjoy the interconnections between the programme’s four modules – public international law, IHL, international human rights law, and international criminal law –, which enrich the learning process.
Yes, it does meet my expectations. The variety of topics shared with other participants covers exactly all the facets of international law in armed conflict.
It is very practical for professionals like me who are unable to attend some courses due to professional commitments. The Moodle platform is very well designed and we can easily access all the courses’ recordings and relevant documents.
It is sometimes difficult to attend classes due to other professional engagements. However, the option offered to listen to the recordings allows participants to catch up on previous sessions and stay updated.
I believe the Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict is a multi-disciplinary legal tool. It is an added value at both academic and professional levels. It will reinforce my knowledge of the international legal framework that applies in armed conflicts and enable me to advance in my professional career.
Sure. I would recommend it to humanitarian and legal practitioners willing to get in depth knowledge in legal principles and developments related to armed conflict situations.

In a conversation with our Director Professor Gloria Gaggioli, Peter Maurer will share insights from his career as the former President of the International Committee of the Red Cross.
Organized by the Geneva Academy and the ICRC, the Advanced IHL seminar for academics and humanitarian policymakers aims to enhance the capacity of academics to teach and research IHL and contemporary issues arising during armed conflict, while also equipping policymakers with an in-depth understanding of ongoing legal debates and their relevance to decision-making.
This project will develop guidance to inform security, human rights and environmental debates on the linkages between environmental rights and conflict, and how their better management can serve as a tool in conflict prevention, resilience and early warning.
This project will explore humanitarian consequences and protection needs caused by the digitalization of armed conflicts and the extent to which these needs are addressed by international law, especially international humanitarian law.
