Law Expert and PhD Student participate in University Côte d'Azur Summer School

Dr Irene Couzigou, expert in Public International Law, and PhD student, Alina Holzhausen, recently attended a four-day International Summer School in Nice.

Taking place from the 6th to the 9th September, the event was organised by the University Côte d'Azur and its focus was "Values and Principles of International and European Law in the Context of Crises".

Approximately 40 people attended the Summer School, including PhD students and academics from other European States such as France, Italy, Belgium, the UK, Romania, Hungary, Moldova and Poland, as well as some participants from further afield such as Canada and Tunisia.

PhD students were invited to deliver 20 minute presentations based on their PhD or other studies, and this was followed by discussions with other Summer School attendees. Alina, who is currently at the end of her first year of studies, presented on: "Duty to Cooperate under International Law and Regional Human Rights Law: An Opportunity to Ensure Protection against Climate Change?".

Alina says "The Summer School in Nice was a very enriching experience for my PhD studies, as well as personally. Presenting and discussing a part of my research with academics from various countries and learning about other research projects made this Summer School an opportunity I would have not wanted to miss".

The last Summer School day was dedicated to presentations delivered by academics on recent international legal issues. Dr Couzigou moderated the panel on 'Contestations et effectivite╠ü des valeurs et principes'.

All participating PhD students will have their papers published in a special volume by Editoriale Scientifica, Napoli, in 2022.
