Program description

Genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes. Do you want to study the causes and search for solutions? Then the International Crimes and Criminology Master is your programme.

Everyone has heard of Darfur, Abu Ghraib, Srebrenica and Rwanda. We often know what happened there and even think we know what should be done. But do we understand? Can we explain these manifestations of collective violence? The master's programme International Crimes and Criminology deals with international crimes in a broad framework. The focus is on the role of individuals, groups, states and the international community. You will gain insight into the psychology of perpetrators, get acquainted with criminological theories on organisational processes and discuss political issues in the international arena. Subjects like torture, rape and genocide are discussed during class. This can be emotionally demanding, but the ultimate aim is to take a scientific approach to these topics in order to draft measures which might help prevent these types of crimes in the future. The programme trains students to become both academics and professionals. After finishing the programme, you will be able to objectively assess empirical data and critically comment on theoretical notions on the one hand, and draft policies, develop preventive strategies and do field work on the other.
