Jean Pictet Competition 2013

November 7, 2012
Rogier and I would like to remind the teachers and students of international humanitarian law who read this blog, that there are only another 23 days before applications need to be in for the 2013 edition of the Jean Pictet competition.

 

There is no better way of increasing students’  knowledge of international humanitarian law and its related fields than by spending a week taking part in the competition, acting out role plays and being forced to get behind the legal provisions in the treaties to see how the law is applied in real life.  As Rogier and I are both ex-pictet-istes, we fall into the category of students that Françoise Hampson refers to when she says:

“I have yet to meet a contestant in the Concours Pictet whose face does not light up when they recall the experience (see here for her article on teaching the law of armed conflict)”

We both heartily recommend the experience not least because this year’s competition is in… Thailand!

For more information  on the competition, see here and for details of application, see here.
Deadline for applications: 30 November 2012.
