Attending these courses enables participants to draw from the comprehensive expertise of the faculty, meet key experts and practitioners and interact with Executive Master candidates. Each course consists of five weekly classes held on Thursday evening and/or Friday afternoon.
This course focuses on the interplay between international humanitarian law (IHL) and human rights law (HRL). Key issues such as the application of human rights in armed conflicts, the extraterritorial application of HRL and the different theories pertaining to the interplay between IHL and HRL, including in particular the lex specialis maxim, are addressed.
