À l'occasion des 70 ans des Conventions de Genève, adoptées le 12 août 1949, le Comité international de la Croix-Rouge (CICR) diffusera aujourd'hui un recueil de cas tirés de la pratique des conflits armés – illustrant l'impact des Conventions de Genève de 1949 jusqu'à aujourd'hui – ainsi qu’une proposition de plan de cours pour des enseignants-es en droit international humanitaire (DIH).

Ces cas ont été élaborés par notre Directeur, le Professeur Marco Sassòli, ainsi que par deux alumna de l’Académie – Anne Quintin et Juliane Garcia Ravel. Ils sont tirés de l’ouvrage Un droit dans la guerre?. La version anglaise de cet ouvrage est régulièrement mise à jour en ligne par des étudiantes et étudiants de notre LLM en DIH et droits humains, sous la direction de notre Directeur et d'assistants de l'Académie.

Le recueil de cas et le plan de cous ont été produits en français par la Professeure Julia Grignon, ancienne chercheure à l'Académie, et son équipe à l'Université Laval (Québec).

‘Nous sommes fiers de rendre ces documents aujourd'hui publics et nous félicitons également Julia Grignon pour son anniversaire, le même jour que celui des Conventions de Genève’ souligne Marco Sassòli.
