Gleider Hernández Appointed Director of Studies at the Hague Academy of International Law

Gleider Hernández has been appointed Director of Studies, English-language section, for the summer 2021 Public International Law session at The Hague Academy of International Law. The Hague Academy is the oldest centre specifically dedicated to research and teaching in international law, and has been running its summer programmes since 1923. The Academy is based in the Peace Palace, alongside the International Court of Justice and the Permanent Court of Arbitration.

The Director of Studies appointment, which is by invitation only and decided four years in advance, was communicated by Professor Jean-Marc Thouvenin, Secretary-General of the Academy, on behalf of the Curatorium of the Academy. The Director’s role is to prepare a select group of advanced students entering for the Academy’s Diploma examination. The examination is extremely competitive and the esteemed Diploma is awarded only sparingly, usually to two or three candidates per year.

For more information on the Hague Academy, please see its website.
