What is MICC?
MICC is a simulation of trials before the ICC for high-school and university students from all over the world.
The International Criminal Court (ICC) is the world’s most sophisticated mechanism for the protection of Human Rights and rules of warfare. MICC is a project that aims to teach core principles of the ICC to high-school and university students.
Since 2005 the Kreisau-Initiative e.V. along with its Polish partner-organization Foundation Krzyżowa for Mutual Understanding in Europe has been organizing the Model International Criminal Court (MICC) with the goal to intensify its work in the field of Human Rights Education.
The working language of every simulation is English, and every session comprises sets of trainings, discussions and workshops with a simulation of the ICC process – preparation, trial and verdict. Bringing in students from all around the globe, MICC fosters intercultural dialogue and understanding among students of various national and social backgrounds. The goal of this work is to encourage students to study human rights and humanitarian law.
