Amel House of Human Rights is pleased to announce the beginning of the call for applicants for the 2012 edition of the Summer School on Law and Armed Conflict.
Amel House of Human Rights,is a program launched by Amel Association in 2009 and dedicated for human rights.
In 2012, AHHR is organizing the second edition of the Summer School on Law and Armed Conflict between the 3rd and 15th of September 2012 at the Amel House of Human Rights training center in Mosaytbeh, Beirut.
The Summer School on law and armed conflicts seeks to provide law graduates as well as human right defenders and researchers with expertise and knowledge required to work and research in the legal framework in order to offer protection to civilians and civilian objects during armed conflicts and emergency situations. Therefore, the summer school presents an in-depth insight into the international – and to a certain extent, local – legislative frameworks which govern all aspects of the conflict.
35 participants will be selected among jurists, lawyers, researchers and human rights advocates (including political science and media and journalism graduates engaged in civic action) from Lebanon and the MENA region.
The courses will be lectures given by local and international university professors and experts alongside representatives of international organizations and United Nations agencies. It also includes in-depth case studies, and moot courts.
