Deadline for registration has been extended to 17 November 2017.

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 (IHL, Desarmament, International Criminal Law, Use of force, Refugee Law) 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. More information (in French) are available here

Schedules of courses and training modules for 2017-2018 are available below.

Being some modules available only in French (Desarmament, International Criminal Law, Use of force), candidates with knowledge of French language are encouraged to apply.

Two sessions of final examinations for the year 2016/17 (written test and oral interview)  will be held at the IDPD in Nice on 18 September 2017  and  23 October 2017. 

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.

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.
