International Criminal Law and Justice is a very fast-growing and highly contemporary legal subject. On the module, you will explore international crimes – genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, aggression – and undertake an in-depth study of the functioning of international(ised) courts and tribunals. There will be dedicated case law sessions to specifically examine selected situations and judgments. The module adopts a critical approach to fully understand the role and effectiveness of international criminal justice as well as the challenges it faces.
