In 2001 the ICRC (the International Committee of the Red Cross) Regional Delegation for South Asia initiated the Henry Dunant Memorial Moot Court Competition (Henry Dunant was a Swiss humanitarian, businessman and social activist. He was the visionary, promoter and co-founder of the Red Cross.), with the aim of promoting better awareness of IHL among law students. This competition is named in memory of Henry Dunant, the co-founder of the ICRC and the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement in 1863. The South Asia regional Moot Court competition will follow national competitions (as applicable) that will take place in each participating country. The winning teams from each of the respective countries will participate in the South Asia regional competition approximately one month after the completion of the national competitions. The winners of the regional Moot Court competition will represent South Asia in the Asia Pacific Moot Competition. The principal objective of the Henry Dunant Memorial Moot Court Competition is to develop an increased awareness and interest in IHL in academic institutions throughout South Asia. A further objective is to promote academic excellence in the student community, and to develop their advocacy skills in an environment of friendly competition.
