THE HAGUE SYMPOSIUM ON POST-CONFLICT TRANSITIONS & INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE
You will provide support before, during, and after the Symposium and work collaboratively with the Program Director to organize and prepare for the Symposium. The Symposium provides a unique opportunity to learn directly from top decision makers in the field and experts at the international tribunals about the multifaceted challenges and demands of a post-conflict society, including security, development, governance, and social well-being. Participants gain a broad understanding of concepts, controversies and institutions surrounding the implementation of international justice through experiential learning activities and case studies. They also critically examine the historical experiences of other tribunals, hybrid courts, and truth commissions in addressing grave crimes and providing redress for victims.
The fellow will receive a stipend of $750/month for the duration of the fellowship. Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to spend 4 weeks in the international justice capital of the world, The Hague. Your round-trip airfare, your accommodations and some of your meals in The Hague will be covered by IPSI. During the Symposium, not only will you become part of a network of students and young professionals from around the world, but you will also have the opportunity to rub shoulders with some of the world’s leading experts on post-conflict transitions and international justice.
