A great opportunity from the United States Institute of Peace, via Professors Laurie Blank and Greg Noone:
The United States Institute of Peace is offering a course on International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights as part of its highly regarded Academy for International Conflict Management and Peacebuilding. The Academy provides practitioner-oriented education, training, and resources via facilities at USIP’s Washington headquarters, mobile training in conflict zones abroad, and online distance education and training.
This course on IHL and HR runs June 17-19, 2014 and will focus on key questions: Why do we have these bodies of law? How do they apply? What is the practical impact of human rights and humanitarian law in conflict-affected states? How do these two bodies of law interact? How are human rights and international humanitarian law relevant to practitioner’s work in the field? The three-day course, led by instructors Prof Laurie Blank and Dr. Gregory Noone, will be delivered through a variety of methodologies that seek to maximize the learning experience, with an emphasis on problem-based learning.
