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 cybercrimes. This course situates international justice in contemporary security studies and international and domestic politics. Satisfies the Global Issues General Education requirement.
