International Institute for the Sociology of Law in Oñati is a mecca for all those who is willing to study law in context. Both master program with the unique experts teaching sociology, economy, anthropology and culture of law and the library offering thousands of perfectly selected books are the best of their type. That is why, I consider my stay in the Institute as a great privilege and chance to advance with my research. The latter is devoted to the collective memory and international criminal courts. During my stay in Oñati I started working on the paper on courts ability to narrate history. The literature I found in the library supplied me with a comprehensive overview of the directions along which I can develop the pivot ideas of the paper. Hopefully, I will finish writing the article soon and will get back to Oñati for the new portion of inspiration.
