4) GS434: Armed Conflict and International Humanitarian Law

Undoubtingly, war has become something as humans, we have created foolishly as a means of empowerment, entitlement, disagreement, conflict, and desire. We can attest that it has also become one of the cruelest issues in which we still intend on continuing even though we know and have seen the evil and sadness it has let loose upon the world on young men, women and children civilians, as well as on the lives of those participating in war before and after they are sent.  This new course is directed toward the attempts of the International Committee of the Red Cross has had in trying to set limits to war and the suffering  it leads to through the International Humanitarian Law. War crimes will be the intended study looking through war origins and evolutions through time as well as their legal points of view.

5) AR228: Who Owns The Past?

Have you ever wondered about what is at stake in this world when it comes to the topics of heritage, culture and archeology?

I am a 3rd year Arts student currently attending Wilfrid Laurier University. I enjoy writing, it is a passion I have had since a young age and I hope to continue to do it in the future as it is a means of expression and opinion. A bit about me, I am also very artistic but love my sports as well. My writing will consist of many different topics and genres around WLU and University life in general, so be prepared for some interesting reads! Buzzfeed is my future goal!
