Can there be laws governing warfare which limit the barbarity of actions during the times of armed conflict? Indeed there can be--and are--regulations which protect human dignity and lessen suffering, regulations which have been formally agreed to by most nations. This class is based upon an international curriculum developed by the Red Cross and is composed of discussions generated by readings and video sources. Topics to be covered include 1) humanitarian actions, 2) historical codes, 3) applications of the rules of war, 4) weaponry and targeting, 5) child soldiers and prisoners of war, 6) war crimes and the particular case of My Lai, 7) judicial and non-judicial actions dealing with violations, and 8) the needs arising from the destruction of war and the special case of refugees.

Printed materials will be provided at cost for their reproduction and binding.
