International Criminal Law Lunch with Anton Weiss-Wendt from the Centre for Studies of the Holocaust and Religious Minorities.
The seminar addresses dilemmas that arise between pursuing an academic career and maintaining other aspects of a fulfilling life. It is aimed at colleagues in the PhD / PostDoc phase, especially in the disciplines of law, philosophy and political science, both men and women. Many are under pressure to publish and take on administrative tasks and teaching, - often in an unfamiliar culture, and sometimes also with obligations of care.
The seminar is organised by PluriCourts as part of its 'Publish and Flourish' mentoring programme; the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights; and the Equality and Diversity Committee at the Faculty of Law.
