Wibke Timmermann successfully defended her doctoral thesis in Galway on Monday. The thesis is entitled: 'Hate Speech and Incitmement in International Criminal Law'. Dr Ludovic Hennebel, of the Centre Perelman de Philosophie du Droit at the Université Libre de Bruxelles was the internal examiner, and Dr Kathleen Cavanaugh was the internal examiner. Congratulations, Wibke, on this great acheivement. I believe this is the tenth doctorate completed successfully at the Irish Centre for Human Rights in 2011.
