The International Nuremberg Principles Academy (Nuremberg Academy) will hold its seventh edition of the Nuremberg Summer Academy for Young Professionals from 2 to 13 August 2021.
The programme will be exceptionally held online this year and will be attended by 19 participants coming from the following countries: Afghanistan, Argentina, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Colombia, Egypt, Georgia, Iran, Kenya, Nigeria, Palestine, Philippines, South Sudan, Uganda and Ukraine. Admission to the Nuremberg Summer Academy is competitive. Participants were carefully selected among a pool of several hundred applicants, with a special focus on young professionals from conflict and post-conflict countries.
Guided by leading international experts and practitioners, the young professionals will gain practical knowledge on the investigation, prosecution and adjudication of core international crimes.
The intensive two-week program will be divided into two parts: (1) daily guided self-study time; and (2) live sessions, followed by interactive group discussions.
The self-study time and the live sessions will provide both an academic and practical perspective of international criminal law, while group discussions will strengthen the learned skills in practical assignments.
