This course is well-suited for those working or interested in war, or in the law governing war and its applicability in today’s conflict zones.
The Laws of War, otherwise known as International Humanitarian Law (IHL) are a set of rules that apply during armed conflict.
They seek to primarily protect civilians, the environment and those “horse de combat” (non-combatants).
As part of Stoke White’s training offerings, which combine our on-the-ground experience as well as our experience lodging cases and documenting abuse in conflict zones this course offers participants the opportunity to learn about the origins and sources of the Laws of War, as well as when it is practically applicable today.
Stoke White’s specialist training equips you with the ability to distinguish between international and non-international armed conflicts, understand the laws protecting civilians, detainees, the wounded and sick, and regulations related to protected personnel such as medical staff.
By the end of the training, participants will grasp the three key principles in IHL that regulate the conduct of hostilities – distinction, proportionality and precaution – and will be able to illustrate how, when properly applied, they can limit the effects of armed conflict on civilian populations.
