Informazioni generali

Obiettivi: The course aims at providing students with appropriate knowledge regarding both: (i) the general principles and substantive rules governing individual criminal responsibility for crimes under international law- as war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and aggression, and (ii) the pertinent procedural norms and the case law of international criminal tribunals, such as the International Criminal Court.

Metodi didattici: he lectures will be interdisciplinary (international and criminal law perspectives) and, whenever possible, experts will be invited to deliver ad hoc lectures on specific topics. Students will be involved as much as possible in the discussions in the class, and are expected to present orally a case which will be assigned to them during the course.

Programma di studio

Programma: Students will learn about the origins of International Criminal Law (ICL), which can be traced to the Nuremberg and Tokyo trials held after World War II, and the more recent developments of ICL, following the establishment of the two ad hoc Tribunals (for the former Yugoslavia and for Rwanda), the International Criminal Court (ICC) and a number of other internationalized or hybrid tribunals over the past 20 years. We will analyze the first “codification” of substantive principles of ICL contained in the Rome Statute of 1998. The course will also deal with the enforcement mechanisms of ICL; to this end, we will focus both on the jurisdiction and practice of the various international criminal tribunals and on national legal systems in ensuring accountability for international crimes.
