The first two weeks explore the past, present and future of international criminal law (ICL), both substantially and practically. The programme provides a comprehensive overview of international crimes, criminal responsibility, immunities and amnesties and practical matters surrounding ICL, such as victim participation and defence issues. Additionally, the participants will explore the issue of state responsibility in ICL, including addressing questions such as to what extent immunities of State officials can provide for a prosecution bar within the international courts.

During these two weeks, the participants will also have the opportunity to visit the international and national courts and international organisations to experience the law in practice.

Topics include among others:

  • Definition and evolution of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide;

Especially since 9/11 the world is witnessing a large expansion of approaches and measures to counter-terrorism. The course will begin by looking into the definitions of terrorism and counter-terrorism, and their evolution since 9/11. Moreover, the participants will explore the jus ad bellum and jus in bello in counter-terrorism, as well as the role of human rights law including case studies on the use of armed drones and extraordinary renditions. Other topics will be addressed as well, to ensure a comprehensive understanding of (legal aspects of) counter-terrorism. These include the question of how the international, regional and national level tackle the issues of terrorism and foreign fighters through (international) prosecution. Moreover, the role of intelligence in court, countering violent extremism, and rehabilitation and reintegration will also be addressed. Finally, through study visits, the participants will experience (legal approaches to) counter-terrorism in practice.

Advanced Summer Programme: Preventing, Detecting and Responsing to the Violent Extremist ThreatDetails

Leiden University

Preventing violent extremism is a ‘wicked problem’ – a dynamic tangle of complex issues, a wide range of stakeholders and no clean-cut, obvious solutions. Tackling this problem requires a networked approach where all actors work together in a joint and coordinated effort. From security services, policy makers and academics to youth workers, teachers, parents and other actors, all stakeholders have their own role to play. Each stakeholder, in turn, works from the premise of their own specific perspectives, authorities, interests and limitations. In order to ensure effective prevention measures, strengthen public resilience and increase on-time signaling and addressing of radicalisation, it is vital to understand the position and role of network partners.

This advanced summer programme, organised by the Centre foir Professional Learning of Leiden University and the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism – The Hague (ICCT), provides insights into the opportunities and challenges of a networked approach to prevention. In an intensive five-day course, participants will meet academics, policy makers and practitioners and discuss the latest dilemmas and trends in the field of preventing violent extremism and how these dilemmas influence the public debate. Furthermore, participants will work on cases and engage in panel discussions to distinguish the various roles and limitations of different stakeholders.

Training course on International SecurityDetails

The Clingendael Institute

It seems evident that the current world order is becoming more and more insecure. The United Nations is no longer regarded as the most effective and legitimate body in fostering peace and security. New geo-political rather than rules-based considerations define relationships between for example Russia and Europe, which hence reshapes European security and defence policies. Non-state actors ranging from multinational corporations to humanitarian agencies and  individuals enter the security arena. The fear of terrorism and returning jihadists are only the latest development in this greater trend.

- Are you working for a company operating in conflict-prone areas or do you wish to understand the market of security and defence?
- Do you need to provide analysis and advice on issues of international security?
- Are you expected to inform the public debate?
- Or do you simply want to better grasp how recent developments fit into the broader international security context?

Is this course for you?
Anyone in this course can participate, as long as you are equipped with:

- Basic knowledge of international relations;
- General awareness of the main news headlines;
- Interest in international security issues (either personally or professionally).

What will you learn?
By the end of the training course, you will be able to:

- Identify the major trends and recent developments in international security and assess them for the benefit of your company or organisation;
- Analyse and discuss issues of international security with colleagues and peers, and make recommendations to managers.
