The annual seminar on International Extradition and the European Arrest Warrant has attracted over 100 extradition experts since 2016 (programs in Oxford and Lake Iseo, Italy) and is now a well-established tradition for extradition experts around the world.
In 2020, the seminar was canceled due to the COVID19 pandemic. It is expected to resume in 2021.
The seminar is a unique opportunity to learn about current developments in extradition law. It is open to practitioners as well as law professors and researchers with an interest in mutual cooperation in criminal matters, as well as Human Rights, Criminal justice and Comparative law broadly.
Recent famous extradition cases will be reviewed and attention will be paid to the most popular lines of argument that are raised in extradition cases (Human rights violation, excessive punishment, undue delays, passage of time, double criminality, etc)
Please note that presenters in the past editions of the seminar included famous extradition lawyers engaged in the most high-profile extradition cases in the world. In the past editions, presenters included Mark Summers an English Barrister who appears on a regular basis in extradition cases, including Assange v. Sweden in 2012, Thomas Wahl, a German expert on the European Arrest Warrant, Gregoire Mangeat from Switzerland, Paul Bekaert, who represented Catalan leader Charles Puidgemont before the Belgian courts, Ned Aughterson from Australia, Gary Botting from Canada, Mungo Bovey from Scotland, Nicola Canestrini from Italy and many others.
