[Online] Advanced summer programme terrorism, counter-terrorism and the rule of law 

When? 24 - 28 August 2020

Starts at: 09:00h

Fee: €930 (Early bird fee), €695 (PhD reduced fee), €1130 (Standard online fee)

Venue: Online

Organiser: T.M.C. Asser Instituut

Terrorist attacks have triggered an increase in security-related legislative provisions across the world. A wide range of new or updated administrative and criminal law measures is meant to bolster states’ ability to respond to acts of terrorism, and to address perceived ‘gaps’ in domestic legislation and security strategies.

In trying to pre-empt terrorism related activities as early as feasible, states have further introduced additional preparatory and inchoate offences, curbs on financial and other support, limitations on the scope of the right to freedom speech and others. How proportional and legitimate are these measures? Are they effective?

From 24 – 28 August 2020, the T.M.C. Asser Instituut and ICCT in The Hague will host the tenth Advanced summer programme on terrorism, counter-terrorism and the rule of law. In this thought-provoking summer training you will learn all there is on the international and domestic legal aspects of counter-terrorism, in inspiring and interactive classes by international top speakers in the field.
