German National Group Meeting 2014 in Kiel

Walther-Schücking-Institut für Internationales Recht

 

 

 

On Friday October 24 and Saturday October 25, the Association of Attendees and Alumni of The Hague Academy of International Law visited the annual meeting of the German national group in Kiel. The board of the German national group invited the Hague Academy association for a two-day conference and meeting at the Walther Schücking Institute for International Law. The institute is the oldest university institute for public international law in the world and had just celebrated its 100-years anniversary.

On Friday we met at the university institute for an afternoon filled with lectures from different professors and research associates who all work for the institute. We listened to lectures about the history of the institute, the Ukrainian Crisis, the role of MINUSTAH in Haiti, and a lecture about the Common Heritage of Human Kind. The Walther Schücking Institute is most famous for its research on the Law of the Sea.

On Saturday the annual meeting of the German national group took place at the Christian Albrechts University of Kiel. During this meeting, the board of the German national group talked about their yearly activities, members, and about the future of national groups of the AAA. After the meeting a tour was planned through the Walther Schücking Institute and its library. The library is Germany’s oldest and biggest university library for international law, which became the first German library to have the status of UN Depository Library since 1948.

In the evening we were all invited to have dinner at the Stena Line Building in Kiel.

Overall it was a very interesting conference and meeting in Kiel. In addition to the Kiel-programme we also visited the city of Hamburg. And we learned some famous German words from the region: ‘Moin Moin’!

AAA visits Annual Meeting German National Group

On Friday October 18 and Saturday October 19 the Association of Attendees and Alumni of The Hague Academy of International Law (hereinafter the ‘AAA’ or the ‘Association’) visited the Annual Meeting of the German National Group in Paris.  The board of the German National Group invited the Association for a two days conference including their annual meeting at the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

On Friday we met over lunch at the OECD building, followed by an afternoon filled with lectures about the work of the OECD.  For example lectures about the role of the OECD in information security and piracy, and the role of the OECD in combatting tax havens. We ended the day with a tour around the ‘Tour Eiffel’ and a dinner.

On Saturday the annual meeting of the German national group took place at the building of the German Representatives Office to the OECD. During this meeting we re-elected the board of the German national group and we discussed the future of national groups of the AAA. In the afternoon an excursion was planned to the ‘Musée Marmottan’ and in the evening we were all invited for an informal dinner at Mr. Sonnenhol’s house. Mr. Sonnenhol is a member of the permanent mission of the Federal Republic of Germany to the OECD and was the host of the conference.

Overall it was an interesting and inspiring visit to Paris. A good start for a renewed relationship between the German national group and the Association.
