Frequently Asked Questions
The International Criminal Court model is a simulation of the International Criminal Court. The project involves participants from Croatia, Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Participants are students from different high schools. Every simulation consists of 30 students in three simulated groups. One group was given the role of prosecution, another group has the task of preparing the defense, the third group are judges which, with the acquired knowledge, adjudicate the simulated case. In addition to the above, the simulated cases are monitored by student press team. Under mentorship of competent trainers, members of press tam learn how to write an article, and at the end of the simulation they published their papers related to simulated processes and activities during the sessions. Each high school sends a delegation consisting of 5 students and one teacher. Parallel to student sessions, teachers will attend teacher training sessions on human rights education, civic education and critical pedagogy, acquiring new skills and tools that they can apply in the classroom.
We accept applications from teachers and students from all schools located in one of the three countries covered by the project (BiH, Serbia and Croatia). The only condition is that all students from one city must attend the same school, as well as the teacher who accompanies them.
If you like the project and want to be a part of it, it would be best to present the idea to your teachers of history, democracy or law at your school. Of course, if you have a great teacher teaching another subject, you can present the project to them. If the teacher likes the idea, then you contact the school administration together, to get consent. If you come from BiH, then you will also need a permit from the cantonal / county ministry of education. After obtaining the consent, you contact the project coordinators. There are three of them, and depending on which country you come from, you contact the coordinator who will be in charge of all your further activities. Their contacts are:
Jenta Šabić (BiH): email@example.com
Ana Janković (SRB): firstname.lastname@example.org
Janet Ponjević (CRO): email@example.com
Once we receive your application forms, we proceed to the division into groups (prosecution, judges and defense). Then you will get the materials, which you need to read in detail and try to understand as good as possible. At the end of the materials, there is a set of questions, which each participant should answer and send to the trainer who leads his team.
Important Note: There are no grades on the MICC WeB, and the most important measure of your personal success in a session will be the reactions of your colleagues and teachers to a well-prepared defense, indictment, and verdict! Teachers will be contacted by the teacher training team. Students and their teachers are required to prepare a presentation of their city and / or the school they attend.
All materials and the workshop content are in Bosnian, Croatian and Serbian.
The teachers are obliged to contact the parents and inform them about the details of the project, and to submit the parental consent for the participation of their children in the project to the organizer. They are also responsible for the group they lead, and for their behavior. Alcohol is strictly forbidden to all students. Teachers commit to organize, in cooperation with the organizers, or independently transportation to the venue of the session and back, and to be group escorts. Teachers are required to attend workshops and lectures intended for them.

The costs of food, accommodation and working materials are covered by the project organizers.
Prior to the beginning of MICC WeB session, all participants should be aware that they will be hanging out with 30 students who may come from an environment more or less different from their own. Some of them come with preconceived attitudes and opinions, with which others do not necessarily agree. Therefore, the basic rule of MICC WeB is to respect different opinions, beliefs and attitudes. Participants will not be accommodated in rooms with friends from their school, because we believe that by sharing rooms they will meet much better participants from other cities / countries. Students and teachers also prepare a presentation of their city / school to show to other participants at an intercultural dinner. The presentation is not necessarily a Powerpoint presentation with historical facts. You can be creative and show a sketch in your language, dance, sing a song, or share the delicacies of your area with other participants.
The organizers of the MICC WeB project encourage the development of joint ideas / initiatives / projects that emerged through participation in the project.
Yes, all participants will receive certificates, as well as teachers!
