Leiden University

The Summer School offers a unique opportunity to learn from well-known and influential academics and leading practitioners.

The course offers a range of opportunities to test the acquisition of knowledge and participants will engage with some of the most current debates concerning the role of international law in dealing with heritage destruction.  In particular, participants will acquire a solid understanding of how heritage is protected in international law; the rules governing that protection in armed conflict and in peace time; the link between heritage and human rights, and the increasing case law from international criminal courts treating heritage destruction as a war crime and as crimes against humanity.

Winter Academy - Doing Business Right: Corporate social responsibility in transnational law and practiceDetails

T.M.C. Asser Instituut

The T.M.C. Asser Instituut is offering a new Winter Academy in the framework of its recently launched research project on Doing Business Right. The Winter Academy investigates the multiple ways through which the law encourages, steers and, at times, even mandates corporate social responsibility in our interconnected environment. As globalisation has changed the way we consume, work and live, transnational corporations impact the lives of multitudes of people across the globe. The question then becomes how to ensure that corporations do so responsibly, and particularly without disruption to livelihoods through environmental damage, labour abuse, human rights violations or threats to health and safety. 

Programme
This five-day Winter Academy provides a comprehensive overview of the legal mechanisms ensuring that multinational corporations conduct their business activities responsibly. The programme will feature renowned academics and experienced practitioners in the fields of international and European law, private law, corporate social responsibility, business and human rights. They will address the general theory underlying the many legal routes to corporate social responsibility, as well as the practical implementation of some of the most frequently employed legal mechanisms by analysis of several case studies. 

What will you gain?

  • Advanced theoretical knowledge of the various multilevel legal domains spurring corporate social responsibility;
  • Insiders’ perspectives on how numerous CSR mechanisms work in practice and at a firm level;
  • Networking opportunities with speakers coming from academia, the corporate world, international organisations, law firms, and NGOs.

Heritage Destruction, Human Rights and International LawDetails

Leiden University

The Summer School allows participants to acquire a solid understanding of how heritage is protected in international law; the rules governing that protection in armed conflict and in peace time; the link between heritage and human rightsm and the increasing case law from international criminal courts treating heritage destruction as a war crime and as crimes against humanity. 

Historically, heritage has always been targeted in times of conflict and transition for its symbolic value. However, the difference between historical acts of iconoclasm and the destruction of heritage sites today is that we now have a general consensus, embodied in the corpus of international law, that intentionally destroying cultural heritage is an internaitonal wrong and, except in the case of absolute military necessity, constitutes a war crime and potentially a crime against humanity. In addition, heritage is increasingly recognised as having a strong human rights dimension. 

The Summer School offers a unique opportunity to learn from well-known and influential academics and leading practitioners. You will gain first-hand knowledge of international law governing heritage protection, as well as the role of international courts in prosecuting heritage destruction. The course also offers plenty of opportunities to network with fellow students and practitioners from all over the world.
