The Faculty of Law (UP Law) at the University of Pretoria (UP) announces with pride that Professor Dire Tladi, NRF SARChI Chair in International Constitutional Law and professor in the Department of Public Law and fellow at the UP Institute of International and Comparative Law in Africa (ICLA) presented lectures from 5 to 9 July 2021 at the prestigious The Hague Academy of International Law Summer Course - at which the most recognised scholars in International law present lectures.
The Academy is a centre for teaching and research in Public and Private International Law, with the aim of furthering the scientific study of the legal aspects of international relations. The Hague Curatorium extended an invitation to Professor Tladi to present a weeklong lecture on 'Extraterritorial use of force against non-State actors'.
Tladi is only the second South African, in the almost 100-year existence of The Hague Academy Summer Courses, to be invited to present a course in Public international law.
The Summer Courses are designed for students and practitioners who have a prior grounding in Public or Private international law and all courses and lectures are presented by renowned academics, practitioners and diplomats from various institutions around the world.
The Hague Academy for International Law's inauguration was originally scheduled for October 1914, but due to the war, was delayed until 1923.
