|Institution||Centre for International Criminal Justice|
The Centre for International Criminal Justice is located on the VU Campus in Amsterdam, less than an hour away from The Hague. The centre carries out interdisciplinary research and promotes transparent debate on international criminal law and justice. It seeks to improve the current approaches to dealing with international crime by developing practice-orientated solutions and providing answers to foundational queries raised by international criminality as well as formulating and testing fundamental critiques of international crimes and justice.
At the summer school you will be analysing how international crimes pose a threat to international peace and security and effective responses. Furthermore, you will discuss how a lack of knowledge on the true nature of international crimes reduces the efficiency of such responses. You will gain an understanding of the complex nature of international crimes and, through this interdisciplinary approach, you will examine the juridical and empirical sides of mass atrocities. In addition, you will have the opportunity to visit the International Criminal Tribunals in The Hague during the programme. This summer school will take place in July and applications will open in December. Check the website when applications open for more information.Apply now
