Courses on International Humanitarian Law

General Assembly resolution AG/RES. 3005 (LIII-O/23), “International Law,” requests “the General Secretariat to organize, within the framework of the CAJP, through the Department of International Law and in coordination with the ICRC, a course for member states, staff of the OAS, and the general public, in order to promote knowledge of and respect for international humanitarian law and related regional instruments, including measures for their effective implementation.”
