Armed Conflict and International Humanitarian Law
War can be considered among the cruellest human endeavours; its suffering is unleashed on combatants and civilians alike. This course examines the attempts by the International Committee of the Red Cross to impose limits on war and suffering through International Humanitarian Law (e.g. The Hague; Geneva). The course will study the origins and evolution of this legal framework, as well as its transgressions: war crimes.
