Jean-Pictet Competition

About

The Jean-Pictet Competition is a training event for students representing a university or a comparable institution in teams of three persons. The selected teams, usually from the five continents, receive remote training in international humanitarian law in the months leading to the Competition. They then meet for one week at the venue of the Competition, which changes every year. They compete in the context of simulations and role-play exercises built around a fictitious armed conflict and the roles of different actors in that conflict (military, humanitarian, political officers, lawyers, etc.). Teams benefit from the support of tutors in tests where they are assessed by the jury. The Competition is organized by a not-for-profit association: The Committee for the Jean-Pictet Competition (Comité pour le Concours Jean-Pictet, CCJP).
