Disseminating the law of war to warring parties, and in particular to armed groups, is essential to ensuring the protection of civilian populations during conflicts. However, this remains a major challenge as the members of these armed groups have rarely received a basic training, have varying levels of education and are located in remote areas. This application will try, at least partially, to overcome these difficulties.
