International judicial dialogue has grown to become an essential feature of the international human rights regime. The course will explore the advantages and limits of international judicial cooperation through the lens of the European system. The course will allow first hand insight into the operation of the European Court of Human Rights and into judicial decision-making from numerous perspectives (from the bench as well as from the Registry). Organized in Strasbourg, at the seat of the European Court of Human Rights, the course is open to a select group of students.

Assessment is based on class participation (10 per cent), assignmenta during the course (30 per cent) and a written final paper (60 per cent).

This course is limited to 10 students selected in a competitive application process.

This course is only available for those students who passed Introduction to EU Constitutional Law and Introduction to the Law and Practice of the European Court of Human Rights, or the respective pre-tests.
