The winners of the Jean-Pictet Competition 2021


National Autonomous University of Mexico has won the 2021 Jean-Pictet Competition after defeating the team from the Panthéon-Assas University Paris II and the team from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in a thoroughly entertaining Final round in Durrës (Albania) in what was a fitting end to an outstanding tournament. Congratulations to all the teams!

The Jean-Pictet Competition is a training event in international humanitarian law (IHL) for students taking part in the competition in teams of three persons.
The 48 selected teams, usually from the five continents, receive a remote training in IHL. They then meet for one week in a place that changes every year, for the Competition itself. They compete in the context of simulations and role plays built around a fictitious armed conflict. Teams play the role of actors of armed conflicts  in a context larger and richer than the sole judiciary context. Teams benefit from the support of tutors in tests where they are assessed by the jury. All tests are oral – no written part is required, except the application file.
