ICC Scholars Forum
Between 2017 and 2020, the Harris Institute jointly convened the ICC Scholars Forum to provide academics who work on and teach about the International Criminal Court a space to gather and discuss some of the common challenges in teaching or doing research about the ICC. The Forum has proved to be a great opportunity for scholars from the United States and Europe to connect with each other and engage with practitioners from the Court. The Forum has been held in both the United States and Europe.
June 29-30, 2020
