This moot court competition is based on the case study carefully prepared by the organisers in cooperation with the ICRC and UNHCR, which addresses the most pertinent and topical questions relating to the humanitarian and refugee law drawing on the current crisis situations. It is designed to encourage students to learn and understand basic concepts of humanitarian and refugee law by addressing concrete legal problems.
