On 17 and 18 May 2019, alumni of the Master program in ‘International Crimes, Conflict & Criminology’ will meet in Amsterdam to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the program. The celebrations start with a one-day conference on ‘International Criminal Justice at the Crossroads’ on Friday 17 May (for which you can still register).
On Saturday 18 May, the celebrations continue with a day especially for alumni, in the Botanic Gardens at VU University. During this day, alumni, professors, as well as students currently enrolled in the program, will meet to reminisce about old times and exchange experiences and lessons for the future.
Professor Alette Smeulers, who founded the program back in 2008, will provide a keynote lecture. Different alumni of the program will then tell about their post-graduation life. Senior Advocate General at the District Court of The Hague Simon Minks will subsequently provide a lecture. Finally, long-time contributor to the program Professor Mark Drumbl will end the program by presenting an anniversary pub quiz. And of course there will be ample opportunity to meet and catch up!
The Master program (until 2018 called ‘International Crimes and Criminology’) was founded on 1 September 2008 and runs for the eleventh consecutive year in the academic year 2018-2019.
