WHAT IS THE HAGUE SYMPOSIUM?
We are professionalizing “Post-Conflict” transitions.
Like you, we understand that transitioning a society from conflict to stability is the hardest single task facing our field. Where others have failed, our graduates will succeed.
Location: The Hague, The Netherlands
Dates: July 20 – August 17, 2013
Over a four-week period this summer in The Hague, The Netherlands, 60 participants will undergo intensive training from 25 of the field’s premier political leaders, academic experts, practitioners, and advocates in the skills necessary to holistically restructure a post-conflict society, as well as serve justice to those responsible for human rights violations. Participants will gain a broad understanding of concepts, controversies, and institutions in this emerging field, as well as critically examine historical and contemporary justice interventions through direct interactions with the actual decision makers. In light of the “Arab Spring” and the increasing reach of the International Criminal Court, this training could not be more timely or necessary.
For the first time, a select number of participants in 2013 who choose to undertake additional rigorous assignments will have the opportunity to earn a Post-Graduate Certificate in “Post-Conflict Transitions & International Justice with Distinction.” All participants will receive a Post-Graduate Certificate in “Post-Conflict Transitions & International Justice” upon completion of the course. In addition, qualified participants may apply to earn graduate-level LLM course credit from the Grotius Center for International Legal Studies at the University of Leiden, one of the world’s premier graduate schools for international law.
