Constitution-building in Africa

Course directors:
Markus Böckenförde, Centre for Global Cooperation Research, University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany;Gedion Hessebon, School of Law, Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia; Renata Uitz, Comparative Constitutional Law Program, Department of Legal Studies, Central European University, Budapest, Hungary

The two-week research course intends to tackle complex societal, political and legal problems in constitution-building from an interdisciplinary perspective, informed by field experience. We seek to combine different disciplines (mostly comparative law and political science) and perspectives (comparative governmental systems; electoral systems; decentralization; human rights; comparative constitutional law; good governance; etc.) to offer new insights on a classic subject of the highest academic and practical relevance.

The course is designed to be a forum for exchange and mutual learning for young scholars and practitioners from the civil sector, from public administration, from regional and international institutions.

Mediation Theory and Skills

July 2 - July 6, 2018 - Budapest, Hungary

Course directors:
James R. Coben, Mitchell Hamline School of Law, St. Paul, USA; Lela P. Love, Kukin Program of Conflict Resolution, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, New York, USA

Mediation is a newly emerging field in both the west and the east. Legislation mandating the use of mediation has outpaced the development of both theory and practice, and this course is designed in part to fill that gap, cultivating scholars, teachers, trainers, and practitioners in this developing and important arena.
Through lecture, discussion, demonstration and role-plays, students will be introduced to mediation theory and skills and examine the impact of culture and context on the consensus-building approach adopted.  The interactive presentation of the material is designed to showcase teaching and training models to those course participants who want to develop programs in their own countries. Participants should come prepared for a highly engaging learning experience.
The course invites applications from junior and middle career faculty as well as graduate students and professionals in law, social science, public administration, psychology, social work, public policy, political science, government and labor relations. The course attracts students from around the world, allowing participants to explore conflict resolution from diverse perspectives and contexts.

Strategic Human Rights Litigation

July 9 - July 13, 2018 - Budapest, Hungary

Course director:
Juliana Vengoechea, Open Society Justice Initiative, New York, United States of America

Human rights litigation is one of the methods by which civil society organizations can bring about social change. This course for human rights professionals will develop the skills and knowledge needed to successfully bring cases to the regional human rights systems and the UN Treaty bodies, and to use those cases to achieve practical change. Participants will be invited to provide information on concrete cases that they are involved in which will be discussed during the course.

The course encourages participants to approach human rights litigation strategically, viewing litigating a human rights case as one step in the process of achieving social change. It includes modules that examine the steps involved in strategic litigation, such as case selection, client care, and forum choice. It also uses case studies to explore how to build a strong evidential record in support of the case, how to develop campaigning and advocacy to raise awareness of the issues involved, and how to implement a successful judgment.
