Metodología empleada Participants are requested to follow the ICRC's Introductory Online Course in IHL prior to their arrival for the on-site course.

The Online Course ensures that participants have a common baseline knowledge of the subject and provides a forum allowing participants to get acquainted with one another. Experience has shown that following the Online Course enables participants to benefit more from the lectures and improves the overall learning environment.

The on-site courses consist of a series of lectures on IHL, discussions on issues arising in relation to armed conflicts today, and exercises designed to bridge the gap between theory and practice in the field of IHL. A case-study based on a hypothetical but realistic conflict that unfolds during the course is distributed to participants prior to their arrival. On the basis of the case-study, specific IHL-related issues and problems are analysed and solved by participants working in small groups under the guidance of expert facilitators. Theoretical knowledge gained from lectures is thus put into practice and linked to the realities of contemporary armed conflicts.
