28-01-2014: Steven Dewulf was awarded the prestigious Prix Henri Rolin 2013 for his book The Signature of Evil.

During the award ceremony on Friday 24 January 2014, the jury praised Steven Dewulf for his ‘…thorough and diligent research, professionalism and work of high quality, which in addition showed much legal imagination and originality in the treatment of the legal argument.’  It noted that that ‘despite an emotional topic, the author did not opt for an easy and too strong ideological approach, but remained with the intricacies of the law and used it as a weapon for an at times dazzling demonstration. The work is therefore an extraordinary contribution to the science of international law.’

12-12-2013:Martine Boersma won the The Max van der Stoel Human Rights Award 2013 for the best Ph.D. thesis on human rights for her book Corruption: A Violation of Human Rights and a Crime under International Law?.

The presentation of the awards took place during the annual World Human Rights Day at Tilburg University. The jury found the thesis very thorough and well-written: “The research question is very clearly formulated and the analysis of both human rights law and international criminal law is of outstanding quality and depth.” According to the jury the thesis is very innovative and will remain on the international agenda for many years to come. “Her conclusions are captivating and persuasive and the book certainly provides an important contribution to understanding, qualifying and fighting corruption. It therefore testifies of a very innovative and forward-looking approach and will definitely contribute to the agenda-setting for the years to come”.
