The International Institute of Humanitarian Law, in collaboration with ISPI (Istituto per gli Studi di Politica Internazionale), is organising its Advanced Diploma on “International Humanitarian Law and Peace Operations”.
The aim of the Advanced Diploma is to provide participants with the necessary legal knowledge to work in the complex and specific context of international peace operations. Attention will be paid to both theoretical and practical aspects of the complex scenarios of peace operations, with particular emphasis on basic principles and rules of international humanitarian law and human rights law, new developing concepts and emerging norms applicable in this field.
Teachers will be eminently qualified and will include: Prof. Edoardo Greppi (Professor of International Law at the University of Turin and Member of the Council of the Institute); Prof. Andrea de Guttry (Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna); Prof. Marco Odello (University of Aberystwyth); Prof. Michel Veuthey (Associate Professor at the University of Nice and Vice-President of the Institute), and Mr. Gianni Rufini, expert in humanitarian assistance and international aid.
To obtain the Advanced Diploma, students must attend a total of five courses, three in class – from 19 to 24 March 2012 at ISPI headquarters (Palazzo Clerici, Milan) – and two distance learning courses, and submit an essay for assessment. All classes will be held in English. Anyone interested in attending the Diploma course is kindly asked to visit the website of the Sanremo Institute (www.iihl.org) or the website of ISPI (www.ispionline.it) and contact either Mr. Gian Luca Beruto at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ms Valeria Sciacovelli, at email@example.com.
