ALMA's Projects


National IHL Competition

The National IHL Competition is a four-day event organized by the International Red Cross and Red Crescent delegation in Israel. In the competition, teams of three students from different academic institutions in Israel participate in several rounds of simulations that not only test their knowledge of international humanitarian law but also their ability to apply it to real-life situations (such as giving legal advice on the legitimacy of bombing a bridge which is used to transport weapons to enemy troops but is also essential to the delivery of essential foodstuff to the civilian population).

The 2010 National IHL Competition will take place in Yad-Hashmona on 15 - 18 November and will be composed of 12 teams representing eight academic institutions.
