This year, there will be 12 teams with 36 students from seven leading academic institutions. The competition is part of ICRC’s cooperation with academic institutions, to promote awareness and understanding of International Humanitarian Law (IHL). It is organized with the assistance of the Association for Promoting International Humanitarian Law (ALMA).

Last year, the winners of the national competition were Naomi Kalvo-Lax, Or Malki and Amit Haim from Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The international competition, the Jean-Pictet competition, will take place this year from Saturday 24 March to Saturday 31 March 2018, in Ohrid (Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia).
