Summer School on the International Criminal Court
24 - 28 June 2019, NUI Galway, Ireland
The annual International Criminal Court Summer School at the Irish Centre for Human Rights takes place from 24-28 June 2019. This is the premier summer school specialising on the International Criminal Court and in which participants attend a series of intensive lectures and events over five days. The lectures are given by leading academics on the subject as well as by legal professionals working at the International Criminal Court. The interactive and stimulating course is particularly 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 the application and interpretation of the core crimes of genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and aggression, the exercise of jurisdiction, defences, fair trial rights, and procedure and evidence before the Court. This year will mark the 20th Anniversary of the ICC Summer School and will be marked by a number of special events.
