APU team took 1st Place at International Humanitarian Role-play Competition, National Round Japan 2021, allowing them to advance to the next round. The International Humanitarian Moot Court and Role-play Competition, sponsored by the International Committee of Red Cross, took place on November 27 and 28 as well as December 12.
Two teams consisting of seminar students supervised by College of Asia Pacific Studies (APS) assistant professor, Doctor Miharu Hirano, took part in both the moot court and role-play sections.
The team that participated in the role-play won first place, which gained them a ticket to participate in the regional round in Malaysia this year. The International Humanitarian Role-play Competition, held by the International Committee of Red Cross (ICRC), aims to help students understand International Humanitarian Law beyond the classroom by giving various fictitious situations under armed conflict as questions, and assigning roles, including humanitarian organizations, civilians, and armed groups. Similarly, the team that participated in the mock trial section, which makes full use of knowledge of international law to answer questions, advanced to the semi-final after breaking through the qualifying,, but unfortunately did not advance to the Asian tournament.
