Student Writing Competition!
American University Washington College of Law Center for Human Rights & Humanitarian Law (Center), the American Society of International Law's Lieber Society (ASIL), and the American Red Cross International Humanitarian Law team are pleased to announce the Sixth Annual International Humanitarian Law (IHL) Student Writing Competition. The Competition seeks submissions of academic papers on the topic of international humanitarian law (IHL) from students currently enrolled in a law degree program in the United States or abroad. The theme of the 2016 Competition is "Refugee Protections under International Humanitarian Law." Papers should focus on ways in which IHL intersects with refugee issues, such as status, how refugee protections are affected by issues of gender, race, class, and nationality, the impact of IHL on resettlement and statelessness, etc. This Competition is part of a multi-pronged initiative to expand and support the teaching and study of IHL among both students and professors in which both the Center and ASIL have been deeply involved. The deadline for submissions is October 5th at 11:59pm.
