Summer school 2014 – University of Copenhagen

Summer school 2014

Due to a high level of interest, registration for the Summer School has closed earlier than was initially planned.

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 is hosting a high-level summer school for PhD students and junior scholars working on international law and with a special interest in interdisciplinary studies of international law and its social and political context. We particularly welcome students and scholars who are writing up a PhD thesis or a post-doc project that involves an interdisciplinary study of one or more international courts.

The iCourts/PluriCourts summer school is based on the principle of participant contributions to the knowledge community.

This means that students who sign up for the summer school are expected to contribute to discussions and to participate in the exercises that are part of the learning program.

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