On February 25-26, 2011, the International Humanitarian Law Clinic at Emory University Law School and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) will convene the semi-annual Teaching International Humanitarian Law (IHL) Workshop in Atlanta, Georgia.
The Workshop is targeted at law professors in the United States and Canada interested in
- teaching an IHL course (otherwise known as the Law of Armed Conflict) for the first time,
- integrating IHL modules into their current courses and/or
- rethinking their current teaching of this important subject.
- Defining the scope and content of an IHL class;
- Exploring the intersection between international human rights law, international humanitarian law, and international criminal law;
- Incorporating IHL modules into the teaching of classes such as public international law, national security law, immigration law, constitutional law, administrative law and more;
- Identifying strategies for developing curricula, responding to current events, and gaining support from school administrations for the teaching of IHL.
