16 - 20 June 2014, Irish Centre for Human Rights
This year's International Criminal Court Summer School at the Irish Centre for Human Rights at the National University of Ireland, Galway will take place from 16 - 20 June 2014.
The International Criminal Court (ICC) is arguably the most important new international institution since the establishment of the United Nations. The aim of the International Criminal Court is to combat impunity for atrocities and it is at the forefront of a broader movement for achieving accountability.
The ICC Summer School is the premiere summer school on the International Criminal Court. The summer school consists of five days of intensive lectures given by leading specialists on the subject, and is attended by legal professionals, academics, postgraduate students and NGOs. Participants are provided with a detailed working knowledge of the establishment of the Court, its structures and operations, and the applicable law. Lectures also speak to related issues in international criminal law, including: genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, the crime of aggression, universal jurisdiction, immunities, and the role of victims. This year the ICC is pleased to have a lecture specifically on Africa and the ICC.
