I. Course Description

International humanitarian law has been recently revitalized as the result of intensified ethnical conflicts and global terrors in the end of the twentieth century. The development reached its peak as the Rome Statute of International Criminal Court went into force on July 1, 2000. A re-emerging discourse notwithstanding, international humanitarian law was a product of the two World Wars in the first half of the last century. As a matter of fact, it helped shape international human rights law and global human rights mechanisms after World War II. Not until in the 1990s when serious war crimes appeared in several transitional regimes such as former Yugoslavia or Rwanda did international humanitarian law reemerge in the field of public international law and international human rights law.

This course is designed to provide a background understanding of the development of international humanitarian law and to analyze basic and important documents and cases in the field. In a way, international humanitarian law is a set of legal concepts shared by international law, the law of war, criminal law, human rights, and perhaps even constitutional law. It should draw attentions from a wide spectrum of students. One of the purposes aimed by this seminar is to serve as a preparatory mechanism for students who are interested in participating in the Inter-University Competition for International Humanitarian Law Moots held by Red Cross for East and Southeast Asia. Thus, students in this seminar are expected to be highly motivated, capable in using English, and ready to work with the instructor to shape the agenda of the course with the approaching of inter-university competition. This course is divided into two parts: class discussion and moot exercise. Students will be graded according to their involvement in both sections.
