JRC Training Course on International Humanitarian Law

14 Feb 2015

 The Youth and Volunteer Unit of the Jordan Red Crescent arranged a training course for a cohort of volunteers on International Humanitarian Law entitled “Peer Educators in International Humanitarian Law”, with support from the Danish Red Cross during February.

The course, which ran over three days, focused on the historical development, basic principles, functions and protective emblems of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. The course also offered an introduction to the Principles of International Humanitarian Law with a focus on human dignity, violations and how to apply international humanitarian law during conflict. Furthermore, the course discussed the four Geneva Conventions and violations of IHL. 

Volunteers from the Yemeni Red Crescent participated in the training course alongside JRC volunteers.
