The Jean-Pictet Competition is a week-long training event on
international humanitarian law (IHL) for undergraduate or graduate
students of law, political science, military academies, etc.
By “taking law out of the books” through simulation and role-playing,
the Competition enables its jury to evaluate teams based upon both
their theoretical knowledge and their practical understanding of IHL.
Teams wishing to register must consist of three students from the same
institution, none of whom has taken part in the Competition before and
all of whom should generally be under the age of 30.
For more information, please consult this document or watch
film made in 2005.
