The Centre for Innovation recorded module 1 “Introduction into IHL”, where Dr. Robert Heinsch talks about the why and how of the law of armed conflict. Curious about our following step? Next week we will start conducting interviews with external experts in the field, before launching the IHL MOOC in November this year.

On Friday 6 July and Saturday 7 July, the annual IHL Summer School wrapped up.

On Friday, Ms. Mirjam de Bruin (Representative of the Netherlands Red Cross) gave a lecture on the enforcement and implementation of IHL, followed by a lecture by Dr. Robert Heinsch (KGF) on the interplay between IHL and international criminal law. In the afternoon, the Summer School participants engaged in a lively paintball simulation of armed conflict, during which they had to apply IHL in practice.

On Saturday, the Summer School ended with a moot court on issues of IHL and international criminal law and a farewell lunch.

We would like to thank all lecturers and participants for a fruitful week of learning about IHL!

On Monday, 2 July 2018, four LL.M. students of one of our IHL Clinic teams, along with their supervisor, travelled to Berlin for the purpose of presenting their research and report on a particular project to a KGF cooperation partner - the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR). The team had diligently collaborated over several months to carry out this research in the fields of IHL and international criminal law.

The team consists of LL.M. students Ms. Joyce Man, Ms. Monika Tobjasz, Ms. Frauke Maas and Ms. Caitlin Fitzgerald. The supervision of the project was undertaken by KGF Guest Researcher Ms. Kaetlin Gale LL.M. and Dr. Joseph Powderly. The IHL Clinic is directed by Dr. Robert Heinsch.
