Humanitarian practitioners presenting to a group

Brussels and Beirut courses on humanitarian law and policy, human rights, and counterterrorism

Join us on 24-28 June in Brussels and 8-12 July in Beirut.

PHAP will be organizing the next courses in its track on humanitarian law and policy in Brussels and Beirut. In each location, we are offering a three-day Core Professional Training on Humanitarian Law and Policy followed by two-day Thematic Workshops.

The Core Professional Training on Humanitarian Law and Policy is an intensive three-day course that serves as an opportunity for mid- and senior-level practitioners and policy professionals to explore international humanitarian law (IHL) challenges relevant to their work. Although previous exposure to the relevant issues is an essential prerequisite, the course is designed to accommodate participants both with and without formal legal training. The Core Training will next be held on 24-26 June in Brussels and 8-10 July in Beirut.

Each Thematic Workshop focuses in depth on a different issue of concern to humanitarian actors, building on the shared understanding of international humanitarian law (IHL) developed in the Core Training and bringing in additional relevant legal, policy, and practical considerations. In Brussels, the Thematic Workshop, organized 27-28 June, will be on the topic of implications of terrorism and counterterrorism on humanitarian action. The Thematic Workshop in Beirut, organized 11-12 July, will look at the human rights in armed conflict.
