Pleased to see (hat tip) news of a 4-day “summer” course on international children’s rights – although it’ll take place too late for most U.S. law students.
Children’s Rights at Cross-Roads is the title of the Grotius Centre course, to be offered August 26 to 30, 2013, in the Netherlands. Coordinators are Dr. Ton Liefaard, UNICEF Professor of Children’s Rights at Leiden Law School, and Dr. Julia Sloth-Nielsen, Law Dean at South Africa’s University of the Western-Cape. They’ll be joined by faculty from institutions in Britain, Denmark, Ireland, and the Netherlands. Organizers write:
‘Children’s Rights at Cross-roads provides a comprehensive children’s rights course, which takes a close look at contemporary children’s rights issues from a legal perspective accompanied by reflections from other academic disciplines, legal systems, local perceptions and realities.’
In addition to coursework, students will visit a youth institution and the International Criminal Court.
Details and registration (deadline is July 1) here.
