The spring academy on artificial intelligence and international law is an innovative one-week training programme, launched in 2019. The programme will provide you with insights into the current and future issues raised by AI technologies from the perspective of international law and related disciplines. Register now for the next edition, which will take place in the week of 22–26 April 2024. Seats are limited.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly present in almost all sectors of our society. From public sector applications in security, healthcare, welfare, or justice, to everyday uses for commercial targeting, transportation or household appliances; AI innovation is advancing at a very fast pace. AI brings many promises but also innumerable complex challenges.

In particular, AI technologies are challenging to fundamental legal norms and systems of international governance. How can we ensure that AI is developed and adopted in a way that respects and promotes individual rights? Why should we maintain human agency over AI technologies, and how will achieve this? How should we address the use of AI in warfare? How can we allocate responsibility for harms resulting from the use of AI? Are existing legal norms and foundational concepts able to grasp and address the complexities of AI? How can we develop and implement international frameworks for the governance of AI? These are some of the questions that will be discussed at the 2024 Spring Academy on Artificial Intelligence and International Law

Programme description
The spring academy offers in-depth knowledge and perspectives on AI and international law. It addresses fundamental issues at the intersection of theory and practice, and provides a platform to engage with the diverging perspectives in the key emerging debates. The programme is structured around five themes: understanding AI, AI and human rights, AI in warfare, current challenges, and international governance of AI.

The programme’s sessions are delivered by experts in the field, both from academia and from practice. The programme is updated each year to feature latest developments and new research in the field.
