International Criminal Law LAW-860

This course introduces students to international criminal law—its historical development from the Armenian Genocide and the Holocaust to the present, and how prosecutors bring a case against powerful leaders such as Al Bashir and Assad. Students learn about international law and courts trying these cases, while also reflecting on whether criminal trials are the best response for bringing healing and reconciliation to affected societies.
