Leiden wins two prizes in Day of Crisis Competition 2023

Leiden University's team participated in the 2023 edition of the Day of Crisis Competition and emerged as Second Runners Up to the Best Team Award and Second Runners Up to the Best Written Advice Award.

The Day of Crisis Competition was organised by The Hague Academy of International Law in the premises of the Peace Palace in The Hague, from 3 to 4 March 2023. Twelve teams participated representing universities from around the world.

The Day of Crisis is a one of its kind competition on International Law and Diplomacy that tests not only the competence of teams in International Law, but also their ability to handle high pressure situations. Over a span of 24 hours at a stretch, the teams in the competition were required to provide over 15 pieces of written legal advice on varied questions of International Law and simulate negotiations at international forums.

The team consisted of Dina Akbasheva, João Pedro Conceição E Silva Seleme Zandoná, Maria-Evangelia Adamou, Rohan Jain and Vipasha Mishra. Their coaches, Daniëlla Dam and Jason Rudall, could not have been more proud of their performance.

We wish the team much success in their future endeavours (and life crises)!
