The summer school will teach 30 participants on theoretical and practical aspects of transitional justice as a response to massive violations of human rights, its mechanisms and implications to different countries. The 10-day summer school program will be made out of lectures and workshops of numerous prominent experts (theoretical and practicaloriented). Students will have classes in the morning and in the afternoon, combined with study time. Visits to domestic and international institutions will be a part of the program to ensure dynamics and opportunity to understand hands- on approach from practitioners. Summer school will also include extra- curricular activities that will allow networking among participants.
Until today, 150 ISSS participants went through the summer school and gained knowledge on theoretical and practical aspects of rule of law, transitional justice and human rights. Concept of the summer school slightly varied through the years, but focus on combination of theoretical and practical to different topics has remained along with eligibility for participants from Europe (with particular emphasis on South- East Europe) and US.
The anniversary 5th edition held in 2011 gathered over 30 participants from all past editions in a 3 days high-level Alumni Conference.
