Updated 2018 PHAP calendar for course series on Humanitarian Law & Policy and Refugees, IDPs, & Forced Migrants
 

The courses so far this year in Amman and Geneva brought together experienced practitioners from across the sector – UN agencies, local and international NGOs, donor agencies, host governments, the Red Cross and Red Crescent movement, and journalists. We now look forward to the next events and would like to provide you with an update about the upcoming courses that still have seats available in PHAP's series on Humanitarian Law and Policy (Nairobi, Amman, Dubai, and Bangkok) and our new series on Refugees, IDPs, and Forced Migrants (Kampala, Geneva, and Amman/Dead Sea). Submit your application as soon as possible to secure your participation.
 
 
The Core Professional Training on Humanitarian Law and Policy is an intensive three-day course that serves as an opportunity for experienced practitioners and policy professionals to explore international humanitarian law (IHL) challenges relevant to their work. Each Core Training is organized in conjunction with a Thematic Workshop, which focuses in depth on a different issue of concern to humanitarian actors, building on the shared understanding of IHL developed in the Core Training and bringing in additional relevant legal, policy, and practical considerations.

The new Core Professional Training on Refugees, IDPs, and Forced Migrants is organized over three and a half days, introducing the international legal frameworks and standards that protect refugees, internally displaced persons (IDPs), and forced migrants, including international refugee law, the relevant provisions of IHL and international human rights law, and soft-law instruments, as well as how States, international organizations, and other actors implement these norms and standards in practice. Directly following each Core Training, the Issue Roundtables look in greater detail at specific topics that have been identified by the applicants for the Core Training.
