Dear Colleagues, The Irish Centre for Human Rights at the National University of Ireland Galway is pleased to announce registration is open for our two annual summer schools.

June 14-18, Minority Rights, Indigenous Peoples & Human Rights Law Summer School

The aim of the course is to provide participants with an overview of the legal, political and philosophical issues pertaining to international human rights law and its relationship to minority rights and the rights of indigenous peoples. 

During the course participants seek to understand, assimilate and critically evaluate legal arguments with respect to the international minority rights regime and how it pertains to minorities and indigenous peoples. In addition they are encouraged to analyse the underlying philosophical basis within the discourse and to become familiar with current debates and cases with a special focus on issues such as the right to land, affirmative action policies, and effective political participation and restitution.

June 20-24, International Criminal Court Summer School

The Summer Course on the International Criminal Court offered by the Irish Centre for Human Rights is widely acknowledged to be the premier programme of its kind. During the five days of intensive lectures, delivered by leading specialists in the field, students are provided with a detailed working knowledge of the establishment of the Court, its applicable law, its structures and its operations. Lectures also speak to related issues in international criminal law, including universal jurisdiction, immunities and the role of the victims.

Registrations close on 15 May, 2010. To register for either course, go to this website.
