The Grotius Centre is very pleased to announce that the third edition of the summer course on international children's rights will be held at Leiden University in July 2015.
Frontiers of Children's Rights provides a comprehensive children's rights course, which takes a close look at contemporary children's rights issues from a legal perspective accompanied by reflections from other academic disciplines, legal systems, local perceptions and realities.
Leading academic and professional experts in the field of children's rights, international law and other relevant disciplines offer inspiring and interactive lectures, seminars and excursions in and around Leiden Law School.
The classes will be taught in the beautiful premises of the renovated Leiden Observatory. On Friday the participants will visit the International Criminal Court in The Hague. Classes will be taught at the Campus The Hague premises that day. The week will be concluded with a dinner party at the beach in Scheveningen.
The time table for the upcoming session will be posted soon. For an impression of the schedule please check the programme booklet
