International Humanitarian Law Workshop  

On April 11, 2019, the Harris Institute and the American Red 
Cross hosted an International Humanitarian Law Workshop. 
The training was led by Noah O'Conner, Regional Program 
Officer, and Molly Kovite, Legal Advisor to the International 
Humanitarian Law (IHL) team, and featured lectures and 
hands-on exercises that guided participants through an 
intensive examination of international humanitarian law, with 
a focus on its application to combatants and civilians. Law and 
graduate students, alumni, and practitioners from throughout 
Missouri and Illinois attended the event.

The ICC Scholars Forum 

On June 21-22, 2019, the Harris Institute, in conjunction with Leiden University's Grotius Centre for International Legal 
Studies, hosted the third annual ICC Scholars Forum.  Launched in summer 2017 in conjunction with the American Coalition 
for the International Criminal Court (AMICC), the ICC Scholars Forum provides academics who work on and teach about the 
International Criminal Court the opportunity to discuss their teaching and research. The collaboration with Leiden University 
facilitates the dialogue between U.S. and European academics and practitioners, and allows members of the ICC prosecution, 
defense, and judges' chambers to enrich the conversation.
