Education & Events
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the format of our courses might be subject to change. While we strive to welcome you on our premises in The Hague, we might be forced to move our trainings to an online platform, at a reduced fee. Registered participants will receive notification of the format at least a month before the starting date.
The T.M.C. Asser Instituut is a leading and authoritative provider of executive and postgraduate education. Utilising our collective knowledge and skills and the power of partnership we create unique and highly relevant training programmes on a variety of subjects and levels for a diverse range of individuals.
Our education and training programmes range from programmes specifically tailored to postgraduate students to capacity building trainings for professionals (including judges, prosecutors, legislators, civil servants, diplomats and lawyers). Our staff is experienced in identifying needs and designing and organising effective training programmes, conferences, seminars, workshops, meetings and other academic and/or educational gatherings.
