The Summer School on Heritage Destruction, Human Rights and International Law is a collaboration between the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies and the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre for Global Heritage and Development. The second edition will take place from 26 to 30 August 2019.
This unique programme gives a broad overview of heritage protection in international law with a particular emphasis on heritage destruction. The course offers a range of opportunities to test the acquisition of knowledge and participants will engage with some of the most current debates concerning the role of international law in dealing with heritage destruction. In particular, participants will acquire a solid understanding of how heritage is protected in international law; the rules governing that protection in armed conflict and in peace time; the link between heritage and human rights, and the increasing case law from international criminal courts treating heritage destruction as a war crime and as crimes against humanity.
