Residency of the British Ambassador in Den Haag, Plein 1813, 2514 The Hague, Netherland

Konstantina Stavrou, researcher and university assistant at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Fundamental and Human Rights, gives presentation in The Hague.

From Monday, 3, to Tuesday, 4 June 2024, a workshop on “Accountability in the Digital Age” organised by Leiden University will take place at the British Ambassador’s residence in The Hague. Our colleague Konstantina Stavrou from the programme line “General Human Rights Issues” will give an input on the use of user-generated content as evidence in international criminal proceedings.

The workshop and presentation are part of the DigiCourt project by Leiden University, a research initiative exploring whether the use of digital open-source evidence can lead to greater efficiency and fairness in international criminal trials. With her presentation, Konstantina Stavrou will contribute to the debate about the potential consequences of introducing user-generated content as evidence on the presumption of innocence.

The event is aimed at a professional audience and takes place in a closed setting. More information about the DigiCourt project can be found at
