Teaching International Humanitarian Law Workshop
Nov 2-3, 2012
Emory University School of Law
Emory Law's International Humanitarian Law (IHL) Clinic and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) will host the next Teaching International Humanitarian Law Workshop on Nov. 2-3, 2012, at Emory University School of Law in Atlanta.
Intended as a teaching tool for law professors, the Teaching IHL Workshop guides participants in developing stand-alone IHL courses, integrating IHL modules into their curricula or revamping current teaching methods of IHL. The workshop provides an opportunity for law faculty to think creatively about their teaching of IHL and to network with others to support and expand their teaching of IHL topics.
Topics covered will include:
- Defining the scope and content of an IHL class
- Exploring the intersection between international human rights law, international criminal law and IHL
- Incorporating IHL modules into the teaching of courses such as public international law, national security law, immigration law, constitutional law and administrative law
- Identifying strategies for developing curricula and responding to current events, as well as teaching IHL with an international perspective
