Inhoud vak

Four times a year researchers of VU University’s Center for
International Criminal Justice or distinguished speakers from other
universities or practitioners are invited to share with our students
their knowledge and expertise on a specific topic related to
international crimes, conflict or international criminal justice (two in
period 3 and two in period 5). The purpose of these seminars is to
stimulate students to critically think and reflect upon one specific
topic for several days. Group size will be limited, thereby allowing,
and indeed, forcing, students to actively engage in the interactive
class setting. Topics will change per year. At the start of the academic
year the content of the different Expert Courses will be shared with
students of the Master Programmes International Crimes, Conflict and
Criminology and Law and Politics of International Security.


The course will consist of a combination of interactive workshops.


The course is evaluated with two written assignments.


A selection of articles and texts that are available online (links
provided in coursebook)


The course is open to master students International Crimes, Conflict and
Criminology and a limited number of exchange students and students of
the master Law and Politics of International Security.

Afwijkende intekenprocedure

Registration for the course will be made possible after the introduction meeting with the coordinator of the programme.
