PhD Summer School on International Law: Courts and Contexts

PhD Summer School: International Law: Courts and Contexts - Joint Summer School: iCourts (Copenhagen) and PluriCourts (Oslo).

The Centre of Excellence for International Courts (iCourts) and PluriCourts (Centre for the Study of the Legitimate Roles of the Judiciary in the Global Order) are hosting a high-level summer school for PhD students working on international courts in their social and political context. We particularly welcome students who are writing up a PhD thesis that involves a strong focus on methodology.

The set-up
The iCourts/PluriCourts PhD summer school is based on the principle of participant contributions. This means that students who sign up for the summer school are expected to take an active part in the scholarly discussions and to participate in the exercises that are part of the learning program.

As you learn more through active participation and cooperation, the summer school requires that you are willing to present your work and to share your intellectual curiosity with others by asking questions and giving comments to other participants.

What was the most valuable part of the course?
“I was particularly impressed with the feedback and guidance I received on my thesis development, using interdisciplinary research methods and career guidance”
