(Go On! is an occasional item on symposia or related events of interest.)
Every year the Irish Centre for Human Rights at the National University of Ireland-Galway is the site of an intensive, weeklong International Criminal Court Summer School.

Topics to be covered will include the matters specific to the ICC -- its establishment, its applicable law, its structures, and its operations -- as well as those of concern throughout international criminal law, such as universal jurisdiction and immunity from prosecution.
