7th REGIONAL COURSE ON
LAW OF ARMED CONFLICTS AND ETHICS
Tunis, Tunisia
December 2-6, 2019
-

 

Program


The scientific program combines theoretical and practical training, with a total of 28 hours of instruction spread in lectures and workshops in equal proportions.

This course focuses on issues of military medical ethics, Medical confidentiality and informed consent during conflict and during peacekeeping missions, the dual obligation of the health officer, human behavior in war times and legal proceeding of the war crime perpetrators.

The workshops allow participants to familiarize with the Geneva Conventions and their Additional Protocols governing armed conflict. They provide an opportunity to debate and discuss the military health officer behavior when facing selected situations from real experience during armed conflicts to remind him his rights and duties in the protection of wounded, sick and shipwrecked, prisoners of war and interned civilians in the occupied territories.

A simulation exercise will crown this training where the participants have to expose the adopted attitude face to some selected scenarios from the lived past experiences.

Conferences are presented in French and English languages (separate syndicates).
