The Brandeis Institute for International Judges (BIIJ) provided members of the international judiciary with the opportunity to meet and discuss critical issues concerning the theory and practice of international justice.

Institutes were held approximately every 18 months, bringing together judges serving on international courts and tribunals around the world to reflect on the practical challenges as well as philosophical aspects of their work.

Institute reports were produced for each year of the program except 2018, for which there is a collectively drafted declaration. To request a PDF of any report, please complete our online publication request form.
