International Summer School “The Past in the Present - History, Law and Memory”
How to talk about the past?
During the 3rd edition of the International Summer School participants had the opportunity to examine the relations between international law and history. Lectures held by leading experts was the chance to discuss what is the crime in international law and can state commit one? What is the difference between the responsibility of the individual and the state? One of the main problem was to find the definition of the nation in the frame of legal and historical science. Seminar led by prof. Kasianov was very helpful. Besides theoretical reflections, participants were able to discuss as well a political practice during the workshops on unwanted monuments based on the case study from different countries.
We invited 18 graduate students, young researchers and people involved in public affairs from Poland, Russia, Germany, Ukraine, Hungary, Czech Republic, Armenia and Serbia. They participated in seminars and lectures held by the well-known and respected lawyers, historians and political scientists among others: prof. Klaus Bachmann (SWPS), prof. Igor Gretskiy (St. Petersburg State Univeristy), prof. Heorhii Kasianov (Ukrainian Academy of Sciences), prof. Władysław Czapliński (Polish Academy of Sciences), Dr. Patrycja Grzebyk (University of Warsaw).
