Summer Programmes 2020

Covid-19 update
Due to the Corona virus outbreak, the format of our summer programmes might be subject to change. While we strive to welcome you on our premises in The Hague, we might be forced to move the programmes to an online platform. Should this happen, we will offer you a reduced fee. If you had already paid for your spot, you will get reimbursed the difference in price. Registered participants will receive notification of the format at least a month before the starting date.

Upcoming training activities in 2020 and 2021: 

  • [Online summer workshop] International public interest advocacy 
    The Asser Institute is hosting, for the first time, a 3-day online workshop on International public interest advocacy. During the workshop, we explore the challenges of public interest advocacy in international law and rethink what it means to be a lawyer working on behalf of public interests in the international system. What tactics and methods can be used to advocate for a public interest? How can practitioners find the right cause and identify funding opportunities to support effective action? The workshop will take place online from 1 until 3 July 2020. 

  • [Online advanced summer programme] Terrorism, countering terrorism and the rule of law 
    This Advanced summer programme on terrorism, counter-terrorism and the rule of law is coming back for the 10th time to bring together experts, academics and policy makers from around the world working in the field of counter-terrorism.
