Last week, Dutch knowledge institutions issued a joint decision to suspend all formal and institutional partnerships with educational and knowledge institutions in the Russian Federation and Belarus immediately until further notice. Leiden University has decided to follow this approach for Leiden-organised international moot court competitions.

Consequently, teams, coaches and judges from the Russian Federation and Belarus are no longer invited to participate in the International Air Law Moot Court Competition, including the upcoming online rounds in April this year.

This decision is taken by Leiden University. For more information, please read this Leiden University news item and the University Executive Board’s message on the war in Ukraine. The Leiden Bureau is available to answer questions on the matter.
