  • Our first visit is confirmed! War & Law: On the second day of our trip, we will visit the International Committee of Red Cross.They will show us an introduction film and provide us with two presentations-discussions about the ICRC's activities in the field and about international humanitarian law to further expand our knowledge of the day-to-day work in helping people affected by armed conflict. Emergencies are unpredictable, so ICRC's rapid deployment capability is hugely important. Interested? There are still spots available!
