Upcoming Regular Courses

Start date

While no specific knowledge is required for IICI courses, it is expected that participants will have an existing level of professional competence in a related field, which will allow them to contribute their knowledge and experience to the course. Except where specifically noted, courses are taught in English and a high level of proficiency in English, oral and written, is a necessity for completion. IICI will only certify completion for those with full attendance and participation.


The Institute for International Criminal Investigations has established a scholarship programme in memory of IICI Founding President, Raymond McGrath. The purpose is to assist exceptional candidates who would otherwise lack the financial resources necessary to attend the IICI’s courses. Priority will be given to qualified applicants from the Global South. The number and size of scholarships will vary depending on funding availability. For more information on the criteria and application process please follow this link: Raymond McGrath Scholarship Programme | IICI

We had a colleague on mission from Geneva a while back, and when they found out I had completed the IICI investigators course they mentioned that it was the ‘gold standard’ of training and that more human rights officers needed to do it. Could not agree more.

You, both the participants and our tutors, are uniquely talented and experienced individuals from whom I learned a lot during my one week with you. Am looking forwards to another opportunity to work with you in an effort to enhance respect and accountability for human rights and end impunity on SGBV crimes.

International Investigator Course Participant

The best thing being by far the team building experience: work with people I had never seen before and that came from different background, put together our expertise and experiences in a constructive way. Each of us brought something to our team and I believe we all learn about the importance of listening to one another and question our ideas. It was like building a picture to which each one of us contributed with an essential detail.

Analysis Skills Participant

The past two weeks have been such a wonderful experience. So I am writing to say that it was the most interesting, fruitful and pleasant training I have ever been to.  Your management of the challenges of our training and your skills in engaging the participants was outstanding.  What really amazed me was, how aware you were of everything that was occurring in the classroom, and how you managed to help each attendee personally and to initiate discussions of the topics everyone was thinking and wondering about
