Practice Relating to Rule 143. Dissemination of International Humanitarian Law among the Civilian Population
At the 27th International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent in 1999, Argentina pledged to “incorporate the study of international humanitarian law into the curricula of secondary schools and universities”.
The rules of procedure of the Argentinian Committee on the Implementation of International Humanitarian Law (CADIH), established to undertake studies on the teaching and dissemination of the rules of IHL, make specific reference to the teaching and dissemination of the law among the civilian population.
According to the Report on the Practice of Argentina, which refers to several annexed university curricula, IHL is part of some university programmes in Argentina. The report further notes that the CADIH also plans to introduce courses on IHL in secondary school curricula.
