The United Nations International Law Fellowship Programme is a six-week course organized annually by the Codification Division of the United Nations Office of Legal Affairs, under the Programme of Assistance in the Teaching, Study, Dissemination and Wider Appreciation of International Law, which is one of the cornerstones of the United Nation’s efforts to promote the rule of law. The International Law Fellowship Programme is designed to enable qualified persons, in particular, mid-level government legal officers and young teachers of international law from developing countries, and countries with emerging economies, to deepen their knowledge of international law.
The Fellowship Programme consists of a six-week summer course at the Peace Palace in The Hague, the Netherlands. Fellows attend courses in public international law at The Hague Academy of International Law and participate in lectures and seminars organized by the Codification Division of the United Nations Office of Legal Affairs. The courses are given in either English or French. The 2013 Programme will be conducted in English.
Fellows are selected on the basis of their qualifications, the needs of their respective countries and the potential benefits they may derive from the fellowship in their professional life. Preference will be given to candidates from countries whose nationals have not been awarded a fellowship in the immediately preceding years and to candidates from least developed countries.
The Fellowship Programme will cover the fellowship recipient’s travel costs in economy class, medical insurance, the training material and the registration fee for The Hague Academy of International Law. In accordance with policies and procedures governing the administration of United Nations fellowships, participants will receive a stipend to cover their living expenses. Accommodation will also be provided by the Fellowship Programme.
Additional places will be made available for self-funded participants from developed countries and employees of international organizations who will have to bear all costs associated with their participation (travel, accommodation, living expenses, registration fee for The Hague Academy of International Law).
