Reports to : Legal Training Adviser
What we do
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) works worldwide to provide humanitarian assistance to people affected by conflict and armed violence.
We take action in response to emergencies and at the same time promote respect for international humanitarian law. We are an independent and neutral organization, and our mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949.
We work closely with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and with their International Federation in order to ensure a concerted, rational and rapid humanitarian response to the needs of the victims of armed conflict or any other situation of internal violence.
We direct and coordinate the international activities conducted in these situations.
The ICRC’s Law & Policy Forum unit focuses on research, outreach and training on international humanitarian law and other norms.
The unit supports the ICRC’s engagement with practitioners, policy-makers and academics, focusing on key emerging issues and debates in humanitarian law, action and policy.
The Law & Policy Forum is offering a one-year paid Associate position in its Legal Training sector. The post holder will work under the supervision of the Legal Training Advisor, collaborating closely with other units and divisions of the ICRC, in order to prepare, develop and deliver the ICRC's legal training offer for humanitarians and policy-makers.
