Diploma on International Humanitarian Law

Registrations are now closed and will be reopened next Summer

Based on the  successful collaboration with the Institut de Droit de la Paix et du Développement (IDPD) of the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis (France), which has provided specific post-graduate programmes on International Humanitarian Law and Refugee Law since 2005, the Institute is delivering a Diploma in International Humanitarian Law.

The Diploma, jointly organized with the IDPD, has been tailored for both students and professionals from International Organizations (intergovernmental and non-governmental) and Governments. The courses, held in English and French, cover theoretical and practical aspects of international humanitarian law, human rights and refugee law and will take place in part at the IDPD - University of Nice and in part at the Institute’s official seat of Villa Ormond in Sanremo. Teachings are available in both in-class and distance learning modalities.

The in-class option will consist of a series of training modules/courses which have to be attended in both Sanremo and Nice. Training modules in Sanremo will provide practical notions of international humanitarian law and refugee law, while courses in Nice will focus on disarmament and non-proliferation, use of force and international security. Schedules of courses and training modules are available below.

The Diploma in distance learning will provide the same training modules/courses as the residential one and is available through a platform within the University of Nice, allowing students to learn in full autonomy although it will be possible to contact resource persons if assistance and/or clarification are needed.

Two sessions of final examinations for the year 2015/16, which consist of a written test and an oral interview,  will be organized on 12 September 2016 and 20 October 2016 at the IDPD in Nice, France.

Registration fees amount to €1056,10. For further information you can contact Mr. Gian Luca Beruto at gianluca@iihl.org and/or Ms Anne Millet Devalle at millet@unice.fr

Regretfully, neither IDPD or the Sanremo Institute does not offer scholarships for this Diploma.
