Professional Training on Humanitarian Law & Policy

Ottawa 2011 Core Professional Training on Humanitarian Law & Policy

The Core Trainings are conducted over three full days and serve as unique opportunities for acquisition and refinement of the skills necessary to address contemporary humanitarian challenges. Lectures, case studies, and simulation exercises are integrated into a curriculum narrative informed by legal principles, recent scholarship, contemporary challenges, and current debates. The trainings are tailored to professionals interested in gaining foundational knowledge, developing a strategic perspective, and engaging in exploratory discussions regarding potential responses to emerging legal and policy questions.
The April 2011 Core Training in Ottawa will be offered by PHAP in cooperation with the Program on Humanitarian Policy and Conflict Research at Harvard University, hosted by Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (DFAIT).

Those attending the Core Training on Humanitarian Law and Policy in Ottawa in April 2011 are also encouraged to attend the two-day Thematic Workshop on Engaging with Non-state Actors: Opportunities and Challenges in Montreal the following week. If you are interested in also attending the Thematic Workshop, please simply indicate such in your application to the Core Training - there is no need to apply separately for the two events.
