The Winter School on the Convergence and Conflicts of Human Rights (IHRL) and International Humanitarian Law (IHL) in Military Operations is a joint-venture between the Institute for International and Comparative Law in Africa (ICLA) in the Faculty of Law of the University of Pretoria and the International Law Center of the Swedish National Defence College (SNDFC). It was hosted at the University of Pretoria in 2011, 2012 and 2013 with the financial support of the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA).
The winter school was directed at 30 participants (15 South Africans and 15 Swedes) who are confronted with the legal framework applicable in military operations in their day to day work. Participation was by invitation only.
There will be no Winter School on International Humanitarian and Human Rights Law in Military Operations during 2014
