International Justice and Victims’ Rights Summer School
June 4, 2018 - June 9, 2018
The Canadian Partnership for International Justice organizes the International Justice and Victims’ Rights summer school, which will be held in Montreal from June 4 to June 9 2018. This event brings together internationally renowed experts and human rights organizations in order to discuss and reflect on issues surrounding victims’ rights and international justice. The development of enforceable rights for victims, notably by the ICC, has created a new reality in which those who work with victims are increasingly obliged to understand the victims’s rights and needs. However, currently, a lot of law students and professionals lack training concerning victimology and victims’ rights. Suck a knowledge is essential to ensure evolving victims’ rights stay connected with victims’ needs and do not develop into empty legal concepts that are detached from victims’ needs.
