Program Description:
Description
Widespread violations of human rights had become a common practice in the contemporary world. Thus, the growing concern of the international community resulted in a demand for international criminal persecution of those who committed grave and heinous breaches of international human rights and humanitarian laws. The course will explore the dynamic development of this procedure where impunity was replaced by international criminal accountability of individuals in various historical trials. Namely, it will address the particularities of so-called historical trials, the multiple functions these types of trials are expected to accomplish and the difficulties they are faced with.

Following a brief description of the historical background of the creation of the International Criminal Court and the analysis of the operation of the Nuremberg Military Tribunal, the ad-hoc international tribunals and hybrid and internationalized courts the procedure to be followed by the ICC will be discussed in detail in the light of grave violations of human rights. Furthermore, students will also be able to employ multi-faceted views on International Criminal Law, namely from the perspectives of victims of crimes and also fair-trials rights of the defendants. After introducing students to the main principles and sources of International Criminal law, the course will discuss in detail four main crimes under the international criminal law. First, we will explore the war crimes and respective elements of this crime along with contemporary challenges revolving around it. Following the same logic, the course will continue with the crime of genocide, crimes against humanity and the crime of aggression.
