The Core Professional Course on Humanitarian Law and Policy serves as an opportunity for experienced practitioners and policy professionals to explore international humanitarian law (IHL) challenges relevant to their work in an intensive, fast-paced, three-day course. Interactive sessions, case studies, and simulation exercises are integrated into the curriculum. Expert academics and practitioners lead sessions covering the sources and development of IHL, key distinctions between international and non-international armed conflicts, the applicability of international humanitarian rights law in armed conflict, the obligations of State and non-State actors, implementation and enforcement of IHL, and the role of humanitarian actors in situations of armed conflict. Throughout the course, instructors and participants use examples from contemporary conflicts to illustrate challenges and complexities.
