Library services for Summer courses

As a service to the students of The Hague Academy of International Law,  the Peace Palace Library puts up lists of necessary and recommended reading for the lecturers of the Summer Courses. The Library makes these readings available in electronic format, so that the students can prepare for the courses before they come to The Hague. All documents can be downloaded from the Hague Academy Document E-Learning Portal , for which the Academy students will receive an invitation by email.
