The competition is part of ICRC’s efforts to promote awareness and understanding International Humanitarian Law (IHL), in cooperation with academic institutions. The aim is to motivate and to provide tools to a new generation of students, who will go on to assume positions of influence in society. This year, the participants are 30 students from five leading academic institutions.

The competition is organized with the assistance of the Association for Promoting International Humanitarian Law (ALMA).

Last year, the winners of the national competition were Shani Dan, Gal Cohen and Asher Rotenberg from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, who represented Israel in the Jean-Pictet International Competition. The winning team this year will also represent Israel in the international competition, to be held this year in Georgia, between 18th to 25th of March 2017.

The final stage of the competition will be held on Thursday, 29 September at 16:45, at Konrad Adenauer Conference Center, at Mishkenot Sha’ananim in Jerusalem. It will be open to public; admission is free.

We would be delighted if you could join us. If you are interested in attending, please register by email to eaboresi@icrc.org.
