The African Institute of International Law is holding a Kilimanjaro Summer Academy on African Union Law and the Public Law of Africa. The summer course will take place from 29 July to 9 August 2024 in Arusha, Tanzania.

The objective of this two-week Summer Academy on African Union Law and the Public Law of Africa is to provide the participants with a better knowledge of the history, content and specificities of this normative system. It aims to provide a deeper understanding of the collective practices and attitudes of African States towards international law.

The course will consist of lectures delivered by leading African scholars, judges and practitioners of international law and African Union Law. The lectures will analyse various legal instruments which derive from and aim at developing the principles upheld by the African Union and its predecessor, the Organisation of African Unity. Altogether, the lectures will offer a concise and clear picture of the normative system devised to realize the objectives of these Pan-African organizations, which reflect the innermost aspirations of African peoples.

The Course is also intended to foster a better understanding of the origins, principles and objectives, structure, organs, and scope of operation of the African Union and African Regional Economic Communities (RECs).

Please find further information in this brochure. All applicants are required to register online using the registration form available on the Institute website.
Registration will be accepted until 1 July 2024.
