This unique training opportunity aims at providing participants with access to information, perspectives, updates, and analysis on accountability mechanisms. It will be complemented by skills-focused modules, giving participants a wholistic training and allowing them to put their substantive knowledge into practice.

The programme is aimed at both those seeking to develop a working background on the topics, as well as those already thoroughly versed in their dynamics. Through a five-day substantive program spread over a period of one month, participants from around the world will listen to analysts, academics, policy makers and international experts to gain insight and rare first-hand knowledge about different accountability mechanisms from a wide range of perspectives.

The Executive Diploma on International Criminal Law and Transitional Justice includes skills-focused modules on leadership, negotiation, mediation, and public speaking. These components will help participants translating their knowledge in the most effective way. In addition, they will have the opportunity to engage in some of the pressing current debates, particularly on the state of international law, international criminal justice, and accountability more generally.

The training opportunity will be implemented from 21 February 2022 to 28 March 2022. Participants successfully completing all e-workshops as well as the knowledge assessment will be awarded an official UN certificate of completion.

The Executive Diploma on International Criminal Law and Transitional Justice is open to everyone interested in transitional justice and accountability mechanisms, including government officials, international civil servants, lawyers, judges, NGO representatives, academics, and private sector professionals in the field of international law and international organizations.
