Frits Kalshoven Competition

The Frits Kalshoven International Humanitarian Law Competition is an annual event, jointly organized by The Netherlands Red Cross and Belgian Red Cross-Flanders. The competition aims to provide students with an opportunity to practically engage with international humanitarian law (IHL) and deepen their knowledge thereof by attending expert lectures, engaging in real-life armed conflict simulations or roleplays, expand their professional network and ultimately, by competing against other teams during the Moot Court, in which they will plead a fictional case related to IHL.
