Hague Courts Dialogue Series

The Hague Courts Dialogue Series is an international law series hosted by T.M.C. Asser Instituut, where recent decisions of the courts and tribunals in The Hague, as well as contemporary developments concerning them, are discussed in detail. Building on Asser’s traditional ICJ Series, and organised in consultation with colleagues from The Hague’s court community, the series speaks not only to professionals, but also academics, students and those simply curious about the legal happenings of The Hague. In the series, professionals and academics are brought together to enter into dialogue in respect to contemporary and classic questions of international law. That being said, while the focus of the series is primarily on matters of international law, it is also interested in domestic cases which may have a transnational effect.

For live events that include plenary discussions, Chatham House Rules will apply. However, we aim to ensure that our regular dialogues will be accessible as podcasts to ensure that our global community can follow along.

If you have suggestions for themes or specific topics on matters relevant to the extended Hague courts community, please do get in touch by emailing c.lewis@asser.nl.


The Hague Courts Dialogue Series provides short conversations with experts on international law about ongoing cases. Your host, Asser Institute researcher, Carl Lewis gives a brief 1-minute introduction of the Hague Court Dialogue Series podcast.
