Spend Your Winter Gaining Knowledge
The Faculty of Law at Justus Liebig University Giessen are looking forward to hosting students from all over the world for the 1st International Online Winter University in International Human Rights Law and International Humanitarian Law. The International Winter University takes place from 3 January until 14 January 2022 and offers an in-depth approach to current challenges faced in International Human Rights Law and International Humanitarian Law.
The program offers you a foundation in International Human Rights Law and International Humanitarian Law before discussing the major debates and challenges that are currently found in these fields of law. This will primarily focus on those issues that are present in both fields of law and consider how similar issues are approached differently. Allowing you to appreciate the differences between International Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law and how both these fields of law, in different manners, seek to protect individuals.
The program combines high-quality teaching by excellent lecturers and practitioners from all over the world.
Non-US participants will be awarded ECTS credits. The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System [ECTS] is a student-centered system based on the workload required to achieve the objectives of a course. The organization's aim is to facilitate student mobility and therefore simplify the process of credit transfer. The system is based on the assumption that 60 credits equal the workload of a full-time student during one academic year. The student workload of a full-time study program in Europe approximately amounts to 40 weeks per year and in this case, one credit stands for 24 to 30 working hours. For more information on ECTS please visit the homepage of the European Union.
Please note: ECTS credits will only be awarded upon passing examinations.
The aim of the course is to help you
- develop a critical and analytical understanding of the background of current debates in international humanitarian law and international human rights law;
- develop a critical understanding of the difference between international humanitarian law and international human rights law by examining similar issues from both perspectives;
- enhance critical understanding of regulatory limits within a contemporary, fast-moving, and geopolitical context;
- strengthen a critical and enquiring mind capable of presenting theory-based arguments with coherent evidence about international human rights law and international humanitarian law; and
- enhance research skills and use of a wide range of primary and secondary materials, national and international law, soft law, and academic sources.
