Munich Advanced Course in International Law
The Munich Advanced Course in International Law (MACIL) is a summer school held at Ludwig Maximilian University Munich (Germany) and dedicated to questions of international law. Its 10th session, entitled “Coping with Natural Disasters, Climate Change and Pandemics: The Role of International Law”, will take place from 19 to 23 July 2021. For the first time, MACIL will be taught as online-course, allowing students to participate from all over the world even in times of a global pandemic.
This year’s programme will focus on the role of international law in times of global catastrophes. What is the legal framework provided by international law and how can it contribute to preventing, mitigating and solving the arising problems? What is the role international institutions, human rights and general principles of international law can or should play in dealing with worldwide humanitarian challenges? These questions will be addressed regarding the following topics: Climate Change and Forced Migration, COVID19 and the World Health System and International Disaster Response Law.
The MACIL faculty is going to include Armin von Bogdandy (Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law), Christian Walter (University of Munich), Marie Aronsson-Storrier (University of Reading) and Simon Behrman (University of Warwick).
Students of international law, young academics and practitioners are warmly invited to apply. Deadline for applications is 1 June 2021. For more information, please visit www.macil-misu.de.
