Centre for Studies and Research 2022


Welcome to all participants of the Centre for Studies and Research 2022!

The Peace Palace Library welcomes all participants of the Centre for Studies and Reseach of The Hague Academy of International Law, 22 August – 9 September 2022. The coming three weeks, the Library will serve as the Centre's ‘home library’, providing the participants with access to all books, articles, essays and documentation on international law available in either paper or electronic format.

Through this programme, the Academy aims to make an additional contribution to the study of international law. Taking part in the Centre provides participants with the opportunity to contribute to an in-depth legal analysis of topics that have caught the attention of the international community, and to add a prestigious publication to their names – something that is particularly relevant for those who (intend to) pursue an academic career.

The 2022 edition of the Centre will focus on Climate Change and the Testing of International Law. It will take place in The Hague from 22 August to 9 September 2022. The Directors of Research are Prof. Jacqueline Peel (University of Melbourne Law School) and Prof. Sandrine Maljean-Dubois (Aix-Marseille University). The participants have already been selected and individual topics have been assigned to each of them by the Directors.

Established in 1957, the Centre addresses a different topic of international law each year, chosen by the Curatorium. It brings together a group of 12 English-speaking and a group of 12 French-speaking researchers for a period of three weeks, who individually cover a particular aspect of the topic under the guidance of two professors. A joint research project is thus carried out, from which the best contributions are published in the Academy’s Centre book series.
