About the Course:
This course aims to introduce students to the institutions and practices of international criminal law as well as to the nature and extent of the offending which has given rise to these developments. It starts by looking at the contemporary institutions which have been created by the international community in the last few decades, such as the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and the International Criminal Court (ICC) as well as international and regional policing agencies such as Interpol and Europol. The course then moves on to examine some of the most problematic kinds of international and transnational offending, starting with war crimes, which first brought nations together to create the fledgling institutions of international criminal law. It then looks at other threats to global security and the safety of human beings, including terrorism, drug trafficking, slavery and people trafficking, corruption, and financial crime. In each case, we examine contemporary data on the nature and extent of the offending as well as evaluating the effectiveness of the law and the means available to the international community to address the problem. These include treaty obligations, inter-state agreements, and prosecution as well as policing co-operation.
- The objective of the course is to provide a general introduction to some of the main issues and controversies in International Criminal Law.
- It also aims to explore the nature and extent of international offending and to evaluate the response of the international community in terms of institutional structures, international law and co-operation practices.
