The International Nuremberg Principles Academy participated in two Masters programs of the Universidad Alfonso X el Sabio in Madrid, from 4 to 8 March 2019.
Director Klaus Rackwitz and Senior Legal Officer Eduardo Toledo held lectures as part of two academic programs created by the Universidad Alfonso X el Sabio, jointly with the Berg Institute and the Human Rights Centre of the United Nations Mandated University for Peace (UPEACE).
Klaus Rackwitz incorporated elements of international criminal law to the course of International Law. This was part of the Masters program in Dynamics of Cooperation, Conflict and Negotiation in International Relations and Diplomacy. This program combines a strong theoretical structure with a practical approach to international law in order to prepare students for the realities of a future career in the field of diplomacy.
Eduardo Toledo lectured in Spanish about the Basic Elements of International Criminal Law to students of the Masters program International Protection of Human Rights, Public Policy and Sustainability. This program enables the participants to acquire the fundamental elements to establish and apply international standards on the protection of human rights, connecting legal frameworks to the reality.
Both lectures highlighted the importance of the Nuremberg Principles for the evolution of the international criminal law system and the work of the International Nuremberg Principles Academy in relation to the promotion of the field of international criminal law and human rights.
