International humanitarian law

Are you interested in humanitarian law or want to know more about it?
The American Red Cross Club at Cal is proud to present the seminar Humanity In the Midst of War: An Introduction to International Humanitarian Law taught by the American Red Cross Bay Area chapter.

Date: Saturday, February 25th, 2012
Time: 10:00am-2:30pm
Location: 183 Dwinelle

Space is limited. You MUST RSVP to attend. Email michelle.carney@berkeley.edu to sign up.

 International humanitarian law is the laws of wars or laws and customs of war and armed conflict. It is comprised of the Geneva Conventions, Hague Conventions and subsequent treaties, case law and customary international law. International humanitarian law defines a code of conduct and responsibilities of nations engaged in warfare in relation to each other and protected persons, usually civilians.

Come learn more about how Red Cross played a critical role in the development of international humanitarian law and continues to be a key international presence as they maintain and uphold them. The International Humanitarian Law Seminars are open to the public and provides an overview of the Geneva Conventions, the basic rules of international humanitarian law and the role of the Red Cross during armed conflict.

All members of the American Red Cross @Cal are welcome and encouraged to come learn more about IHL. A certificate of completion is awarded for those present for the entire seminar!
