Model International Criminal Court Western Balkans
What is miccweb?
In 2013, the project Model International Criminal Court Western Balkans was kicked off thanks to the SHL Sozialer Tag funding support. The project encompassed recreating the successful Kreisau Initiative’s Model International Criminal Court project, in three countries in the Western Balkans: Croatia, Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Model International Criminal Court is a successful Kreisau Initiative project that has been running for 15 years. The workshops in MICC are designed according to the needs of the young participants. Trainers apply methods of non-formal education which are participatory and learner-centered.
Learning from History
MICC simulates cases and verdicts related to the International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia (Erdemović case), as well as verdicts from the International Criminal Court for Rwanda (Bikindi case) and the famous Nuremberg trials (Flick), which preceded the establishment of the International Criminal Court.
Even though the WeB stands for “Western Balkans”, we aimed to create a genuine web – a network, information exchange and establishing of personal and close connections between young people of the divided former Yugoslav countries.
MICCWeB aspires to reconnect the region, uniting the youth by a set of common ideas about their present and future, and desire to process the past so that it no longer presents a burden and source of conflict. The MICCWeB project serves as a safe opening of discussion on difficult subjects, in a non-confrontational way.
