Special course: PhD Summer School on International law: Courts and Contexts

University of Copenhagen

The Centre of Excellence for International Courts (iCourts) and PluriCourts (Centre for the Study of the Legitimate Roles of the Judiciary in the Global Order) are hosting a high-level summer school for PhD students working on international courts in their social and political context. We particularly welcome students who are writing up a PhD thesis that involves a strong focus on methodology.

The set-up
The iCourts/PluriCourts PhD summer school is based on the principle of participant contributions to the knowledge community. This means that students who sign up for the summer school are expected to contribute to discussions and to participate in the exercises that are part of the learning program.

As you learn more through active participation and cooperation, the summer school requires of you that you will be willing to present your work and to share your intellectual curiosity with others by asking questions and giving comments to other participants.

What was the most valuable part of the course?
"Exchanging and confronting the thoughts from my thesis with people from different backgrounds."
