Irish Centre for Human Rights, National University of Ireland Galway
International Criminal Court Summer School
27 June - 1 July 2016
Deadline for registration: 10 June 2016
The International Criminal Court is arguably the most important 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 at the Irish Centre for Human Rights at the National University of Ireland Galway is the premier summer school on the International Criminal Court. The summer school takes place over five days and includes intensive lectures by leading specialists on the subject as well as social activities. This interactive and stimulating course is suited to postgraduate students, legal professionals, scholars and NGO workers. 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, jurisdiction, fair trial rights, and the rules of procedure and evidence.
This year’s ICC Summer School will include a special session on victims at the International Criminal Court.
Please note that a limited number of scholarships are available. More information can be found on our General Information page.
