The Article 33 Institute (Article 33) is an independent organisation with the goal of enhancing young professional’s expertise on international law and affairs. We hope to inspire innovative approaches and critical thinking on issues faced by international law in an ever-changing international climate.


Article 33 aims to provide a forum for discussion and debate on prevalent, and emerging trends in international law and affairs. By targeting youth and young professionals, the institute seeks to educate and expand the next generation’s knowledge, skills and experience, not only in all aspects and areas of international law (including private international law, criminal law, public international law, international humanitarian law), but also in global governance, international affairs and the work of international courts and tribunals.
