University of Copenhagen: iCourts Summer School

iCourts Summer School


The Centre of Excellence for International Courts (iCourts) 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 a study of one or more international courts.

All faculty of the iCourts summer school are experienced researchers who are either iCourts permant staff or iCourts’ targeted international collaborators.

The iCourts 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 programme.

Since learning is best facilitated in a stimulating end pleasant environment, the summer school also includes a number of social activities. These include outings to various places in and around Copenhagen and will assure that you get the most out of your visit to the happiest city on earth.
