IILAT works with international and domestic experts to offer training that provides practitioners with knowledge, skills, and resources in the area of international criminal law, transnational law and human rights. Our capacity-building training initiatives are directed at:
civil society organisations
IILAT works with parties to understand their needs, and designs and provides specialist support in mutually agreed areas to build and develop effective and robust legal systems that uphold the rule of law.
With an emphasis on transferring legal expertise and skills, IILAT appreciates that experts must be matched to the needs of those being trained. Training must also be individually tailored to ensure that it is appropriate for the legal sector in the country and/or region as well as culturally and gender sensitive.
IILAT’s training can be delivered online, in The Hague or in any location which is more suitable to the client's needs. The specific content and duration of the training can also be tailored to the client’s needs. IILAT’s training can be delivered in English, French or Arabic.
All our training consist of a blend of theoretical courses and practical exercises delivered by experienced practitioners before international courts.

Capacity Building Courses
IILAT's capacity-building courses include:
Overcoming Challenges in Prosecuting International Crimes
This course has been designed for human rights activists and legal professionals who want to enhance their knowledge and experience with the prosecution of international crimes. This is an effective course for national bodies and institutions - including national prosecutorial bodies - who are dealing with international crimes (e.g. Ukraine). This training is delivered by experienced practitioners and academics in international criminal prosecutions before the International Criminal Court, and consists of a blend of theory and practical exercises.
Understanding the Legal Framework (International Criminal Law, International Humanitarian Law and International Human Rights Law)
This course has been designed for human rights activists and transitional justice professionals with limited knowledge of international law who want to enhance their understanding of international criminal law and procedure, international humanitarian law and international human rights law. This training is delivered by experienced practitioners and academics in international law and transitional justice and consists of a blend of theory and practical exercises.
Best Practices in International Criminal Investigations
This training has been designed for investigators, analyst and human rights defenders conducting investigations into international crimes and serious human rights violations. Our courses are heavily tailored to local contexts to ensure relevance and accuracy.
Effective Strategic Human Rights Litigation
This course has been designed for legal practitioners and human rights defenders who intend to promote social change through litigation before domestic, regional and international courts and institutions. This training is delivered by experienced practitioners and human rights activists and consists of a blend of theory and practical exercises.
Efficient Judicial Management
This course has been designed for legal practitioners before domestic jurisdictions who are investigating or dealing with international crimes. It will provide key advice on how to effectively conduct investigations, manage large quantities of evidence and ensure a comprehensive and accurate incorporation of the most recent jurisprudence of international courts and tribunals.
Key Aspects of Transitional Justice
This course has been specifically designed for human rights activists or international criminal law practitioners who want to broaden their knowledge and understanding of transitional justice processes and mechanisms. This training is delivered by practitioners with vast experience in transitional justice, including in the Central African Republic, Mali, Palestine and Lebanon.
Human Rights-Oriented Security Sector Reform
This course has been designed by experts with extensive human rights security sector reform experience, including in Lebanon. Many security sector reform (SSR) stakeholders share a policy discourse that conceives of SSR both as a long-term process of institutional transformation toward democratic governance, and as tool to pursue short-term stabilization objectives. In practice, however, there is routinely less focus on bringing about effective civilian oversight, performance and legal accountability, and transparency over decision making. This course pushes participants to place human rights at the forefront of their capacity-building activities in the security sector.
Working with Vulnerable Stakeholders and Communities
Vulnerable stakeholders and communities in the international justice and human rights field require additional considerations and unique approaches. This course has been designed to build capacities within institutions and groups to appropriately cater for these aspects. The course is finely tailored to account for local contexts and intersectional perspectives.
