Conference Hosts

We are pleased to announce that our Barcelona partners–who hosted our 15th Biennial Conference virtually–have​ ​graciously agreed​ ​to hold our 16th Biennial Conference in the summer of 2023 in Spain.

The University of Barcelona is one of the leading public institutions of higher education in Spain and has become a leader in European research activity, both in terms of the number of research programs it conducts and the excellence these have achieved.

The university combines the values of tradition with its position as an institution dedicated to innovation and teaching excellence: a university that is as outward-looking and cosmopolitan as the city from which it takes its name.

The University of Barcelona’s Faculty of Law dates back to the establishment of the University itself. The Faculty of Laws and Canons, as it was then known, was part of the Estudi General of Barcelona, the forerunner of our university (founded in 1450).

Today it is the largest law faculty in Catalonia, currently offers bachelor’s degree courses in Law, Political Science, Criminology, Labour Relations, and Public Management and Administration, as well as various university master’s degrees, a doctoral program, and a variety of postgraduate and lifelong learning courses and programs.

After the difficult choice to move the 2021 conference to a virtual platform, the conference committee fully embraced the titular program, exploring the challenges of studying, teaching, and preventing genocide in a fully digital sphere.

Recordings of the keynote sessions are available on the IAGS YouTube Channel.
