TweetThis! Scholarship: Criminal Law & Sea Piracy, Freiburg (Germany)

The Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law in Freiburg (Germany)

The proliferation of acts of piracy and armed robbery at sea against vessels off the coast of Somalia has prompted the international community to intervene and to carry out law enforcement measures in the Horn of Africa region. Practice has shown that these enforcement operations as well as the adjudication of alleged offenders in domestic courts involve a variety of legal issues, which remain unsettled. The Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law in Freiburg (Germany) intends to foster research on the criminal law pertaining to sea piracy and is therefore inviting applications for 2 month in-house research scholarships
from 15 October to 15 December 2009 in the field of Criminal Law & Sea Piracy

A number of academics and/or practitioners, preferably from States of the Horn of Africa region, will be awarded a scholarship in order to carry out research at the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law in the area of the criminal law pertaining to sea piracy. Possible areas of research include the domestic legal framework for prosecuting piratical attacks (such as substantive criminal norms on piracy and armed robbery at sea and its sanctions, specific aspects of criminal procedure and evidence, the jurisdictional basis by which to prosecute alleged pirates) in addition to questions pertaining to international criminal law and practice. The presentation and discussion of preliminary findings in a workshop and the publication of the research results are planned.

Fellows will be chosen based on their practical experience and/or involvement in dealing with questions related to the crime of piracy and/or their capacity to transfer knowledge to regional States in the Horn of Africa affected by sea piracy or involved in the adjudication of alleged pirates. The strengths of their academic background and their research credentials will also be taken into consideration. Therefore, not only academics but also practitioners (e.g., persons 2 / 2 working in the administration or judiciary), preferably from the Horn of Africa region, are invited to apply for the in-house research scholarships. A good (oral and written) command of English, French, or German is required.

The Max Planck Society grants scholarships in line with the academic qualifications of the applicant; travel expenses are usually not refunded by the Max Planck Institute.  Applications should include a résumé (curriculum vitae), motivation letter, publication list, short research proposal (describing the intended research topic/area), the questionnaire for scholarship holders, as well as two references.

Please submit your application by e-mail (maximum 5 MB per message) no later than September
1, 2009 to stipendien@mpicc.de (re: S-09-08). Applications should not be submitted by post.
Please feel free to forward this announcement to interested colleagues and/or university and professional
