Nuremberg Academy hosted Human Rights Programme of the Berg Institute


On 12 January 2024, the Nuremberg Academy welcomed a group of 33 professionals from Spain and Latin America from the study programme “Derechos Humanos en el Terreno: Europa 2024. Liderazgo estratégico en Derechos Humanos y educación para la Paz”, run by the Instituto Berg de Derechos Humanos y Relaciones Internacionales. Project Officer Dr Pablo Gavira Díaz officially welcomed the participants and highlighted the mandate, role and work of the Academy, in a session held entirely in Spanish. This was followed by a lengthy discussion on the significance of the Nuremberg Principles in the light of current challenges, with particular emphasis on immunity for Heads of State while in office, the insertion of new international crimes into the Rome Statute, corporate criminal responsibility under international criminal law and the principle of universal jurisdiction.
