Red Cross offers free four-hour course

Students explore human dignity in the midst of war

Learn about the Geneva Conventions by engaging in hands-on activities and thought-provoking discussions, while exploring the powerful and fundamental concept of human dignity in the midst of war.    The American Red Cross will host a free certificate course on international humanitarian law.  The course, which is open to the public, meets from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in Byrd Hall Auditorium at The Citadel on November 7 and 14.  Participants must attend both sessions to receive the certificate and should plan to arrive 15 minutes before the first session to register.

The department of political science will also host a public screening of the PBS film The Reckoning:  the Fight for the International Criminal Court at 7 p.m., November 21, in Jenkins Hall Auditorium. The film is an account of the new International Criminal Court's struggle to prosecute perpetrators—however powerful or concealed they may be—of crimes against humanity as the court fights to establish its own credibility on the world stage.

The screening will be followed by a video conference with filmmakers Paco de Onìs, Peter Kinoy and Pamela Yates.
