The International Nuremberg Principles Academy will establish a worldwide forum at the historical venue of the Nuremberg Trials. The Nuremberg Academy develops activities in the fields of target-group specific training, interdisciplinary research and human rights education.

With target group specific training seminars, for example for legal practicioners and journalists from countries affected by major human rights violations the International Nuremberg Principles Academy promotes the conversion of international criminal law into national law. Insights gained from the workshops and conferences influence the interdisciplinary research.
