Open Call for participants for an international teacher seminar on Justice and Injustice
How to best serve justice when crimes are committed by those in power and national justice systems do not deliver? For the past two years, EuroClio has offered both high school student and teacher seminars addressing this complicated issue. We are happy to announce that EuroClio has received an Erasmus+ grant to offer the seminar “Seeking Justice: From Nuremberg to the Hague” to a wider range of participants.
On February 26-27, 2024 we will be holding an in-personteacher seminar program in the Hague, Netherlands. The program, in English, will introduce teachers to active methods to use in their classrooms such as research, discussion, group work, presentations, debates, and simulations, all culminating with a visit to the International Criminal Court (ICC) and attendance at a current international criminal trial. Context will be added in the form of discussing the history of the development of international criminal justice, with an investigation of the Nuremberg Trials, the four prosecutable crimes, and the progress since 1946 up until the implementation of the Rome Statute and the opening of the ICC in 2002. No prior legal knowledge is needed.
We invite all interested teachers to apply to participate in this Erasmus+ 2-day seminar, which includes all fees, travel, accommodation and meals. In order to be part of this initiative we would ask you to fill in the attached form. The deadline for receipt of this application is January 15, 2024.
EuroClio is also offering this 2-day seminar for selected participants free of charge, with covered travel and accommodation costs.
