With the rise of global terrorism, the traditional distinction between armed conflicts between states and internal armed conflict is being eroded. Meanwhile, international crimes are being perpetrated on a daily basis. How has the law dealt with this?
This International Criminal Justice and Armed Conflict course from the University of Nottingham will help you develop a holistic overview of the law governing the use of force by states, the law applicable to the conduct of hostilities, and the international criminal justice system. You will consider current issues and modern challenges to the law and politics surrounding war and justice, as well as the legal and philosophical responses to international criminality.
You will be taught by internationally recognised experts in the field, many of whom have worked with relevant international organisations such as the International Criminal Court and the Special Court for Sierra Leone.
