ICC Scholars Forum

Since 2017, the Harris Institute has 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. Individuals working in this field who would like to join the listserve are invited to contact the Harris Institute at HarrisInstitute@wustl.edu with the subject line “ICC Scholars Forum.”
