  • 2017 Programme The Hague Academy Summer Courses

    May 30, 2017

    The Summer Courses are organized in two periods of 3 weeks each, one focusing on Public International Law and one on Private International Law. Since the very outset in 1923 thousands of students from over 100 nationalities have been able to attend them. Many alumni, having thus had the opportunity to meet “great names” in the field of international Law, have subsequently gone on to become themselves well-known academics, lawyers or diplomats, among other occupations. The courses consist of lectures on general or special topics and are subsequently published in the Collected Courses series, of which there are currently over 380 volumes, ranking among the most important encyclopaedic publications on public and private international law.

This 9 volume ‘Encyclopedia of Islamic International Law’, written by Suhayl Husayn al Fatlawi and published in Amman by Dar al Thaqafa in 2014, is a comparative study with Public International Law. Volume 1 “The Principles of Islamic International Law” treats the concept, the sources – Quran, Sunna, treaties, justice and fairness – and general principles, a.o. customary law. Volume 2 “The Morality in Prophet Mohammad Diplomacy” explains the legal position of the Prophet, his morality, the direction of the international relations, in particular with other religions, treaties, the settlement of international disputes and his immunities and privileges.
