International Crimes, Conflict and Criminology is a one-year, full-time programme taught entirely in English. You’ll learn to analyse why people commit crimes in times of conflict (etiology), how to measure and investigate these crimes (prevalence), and how to critique modes of transitional justice (reaction). But the course isn’t just theoretical: you’ll have active discussions about international criminal law, and you’ll get the chance to apply criminological, sociological and psychological theories and methods to real-world case studies.
The ultimate aim of the programme is to understand why and in what contexts criminal acts take place, and what the suitable responses should be. This isn’t just an academic programme – it’s training for your professional career. You’ll have the tools to look at the evidence objectively, get hands-on experience in the field, challenge criminology theories, draft up policies to fight crime, and develop strategies to prevent future crimes.
