18 August - 5 September 2014, Peace Palace, The Hague (The Netherlands)
Deadline for application: 15 March 2014
The Centre is designed to bring together young international lawyers of a high standard from all over the world, to undertake original research on a common general theme which is determined each year by the Academy. The research work undertaken at the Centre may be included in a collective work published by the Academy.
The topic of 2014 is 'The Rights of Women and Elimination of Discrimination'. The topic is broad in order to bring together scholars specialising in either Public International Law or Private International Law, or both. The aim is to cover both theoretical and practical aspects, with regard to a variety of situations and contexts. Considering that the contributions are to be published later on in the form of a Centre book, the candidates are expected to be able to write fluently in either French or English.
