Hague Academy: Centenary Celebrations on 24-26 May 2023


Today the Hague Academy of International Law begins its celebrations to mark its centenary.

As indicated on its website: “Tirelessly since 1923, the Academy works, in The Hague, rightly named the International City of Peace and Justice, on “the teaching, study, dissemination and wider appreciation of international law”, to take the words of the United Nations General Assembly. After 100 years, it is time to make a short pause, at the occasion of a Solemn Sitting on 24 May, and look at what has been, what is, and also what, beyond the Centenary, must be accomplished by the Academy.”

There are two main events organised:

On Wednesday 24 May a solemn sitting will take place, the agenda is available here.

On Thursday 25 May  and Friday 26 May a colloquium will be held, the agenda is available here. Some of the interesting sessions in our area are “public interest in international law”, “public interest in litigation”, “humanization of private international law” and “the law applicable to international arbitration”.

Both events will be streamed online but only accessible to registered participants.

We (and I am sure all of its alumni) rejoice with the Hague Academy in celebrating this important milestone.
