Respect for human rights is one of the foundations of a functioning society and creating awareness on the grass root level is the key for successful human rights education. This is especially true for both Estonia and Ukraine, where the issues of human rights are put into the context of different ethnic/national identities and integration and where the crimes of the former regime are still too personal to discuss.

Model International Criminal Court is an active learning method created by the Kreisau-Initiative Berlin, which takes prominent cases from the worst conflicts in the modern world and puts them into the context of the principles of international criminal law. During the simulation the students explore their roles as prosecutors, members of the defence, judges or members of the observing media. Subject to the simulation are final pleadings of historic cases that were heard before the international tribunals, namely the Nuremberg Tribunal, the ICTY and the ICTR.

Project is supported by Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs from Estonian Development Cooperation funds and is run by the Unitas Foundation, based in Tallinn, Estonia. MICC is conducted in Ukraine in partnership with the Congress of national minorities of Ukraine.

Trainer: Viktor Nikonov (Estonia, Unitas), Oleksandr Svyetlov (Ukraine).
