CJ 354 - International Justice


This course addresses international justice for atrocities, human rights violations, and other international crimes. Students are introduced to key concepts about atrocity crimes and international criminal law and learn about the nature of victims and perpetrators of international crimes. The course focuses on the different types of institutions and policies used to provide justice, such as international courts and truth commissions, and explores contemporary “impunity gaps” in international justice, such as major power, corporate, and cyber crimes. This course situates international justice in contemporary security studies and international and domestic politics. Satisfies the Global Issues General Education requirement.
