War crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide harm people, disrupt societies and endanger global peace and security. In recent decades the international community has expressed its clear desire to end such atrocities and to prosecute those responsible. 

But designing effective “real-world” response strategies and understanding the underlying human behaviour remain extremely challenging. Only a multidisciplinary approach has any hope of success.

  • Can analyse and critically assess the nature and origins of international criminal justice.
  • Understand and can distinguish between the most important legal concepts.
  • Recognize and comprehend the most relevant criminological theories to explain the occurrence of mass atrocities.
