Documentation of scenes of war crimes & human right violations course: 5 to 9 June 2017

The Institute for International Criminal Investigations (IICI) proposes to hold its fifth "Documentation of Scenes of War Crimes and Human Rights Violations" Course from 5 to 9 June 2017 and is seeking applications from people who wish to attend the course.

The deadline for applications is 5 May 2017.

The course covers topics considered essential to the effective documentation of scenes of atrocity crimes and human rights violations and will add to the skills of those involved in these important investigations.  Importantly, it will ensure that notes and photo-documentation, often made at great risk, will have their greatest possible impact and will be capable of use by experts, for effective advocacy and for use in judicial proceedings. 

The course is open to individuals from a variety of professional backgrounds, however it is desirable that participants are engaged in the field of international humanitarian law or human rights investigation, either within a recognised international organisation (governmental or non-governmental) or a national war crimes investigation unit.  Fluency in written and spoken English is a necessity for this course.

Equipment:  Participants are requested to supply their own digital SLR camera and laptop.

Venue:  The course will take place at the course is IICI Headquarters (The Hague, The Netherlands) and the Royal Netherlands Army School for Peace Missions.

The fee for participation is €825.  This amount covers tuition only.  Participants must arrange and meet the costs of their own travel, accommodation and meals (lunch will be provided on course days).  All interested persons should send the completed “Documentation of War Crimes Course Application Form”, together with an electronic version of their curriculum vitae, a two or three page sample of their writing in English, and references by email.
