Split – International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights


ELSA Split would like to welcome you to our 3rd WELS on International Humanitarian Law & Human Rights. We offer you a rich academic programme and a chance to experience the unique historical town of Split. 

The essence of International Humanitarian Law is to reduce the impact of armed conflicts on humanity which is especially important in these turbulent times of war and political crises. You will learn about civil, political, economic, social, and cultural rights. As Croatia is also a country that went through a war recently, there are still a lot of legal concerns being raised up to this day. For this reason, our lecturers are immensely experienced in this legal area and will give you the best insights into this field and answer any questions you might have.

We also offer you rich cultural and social activities such as Split sightseeing, a visit to the Diocletian's Palace, bowling and karaoke nights as well as evening events.
