This seminar will explore themes in international criminal law and its application by international criminal tribunals. Students will get an introduction to the substantive law that tribunals apply, including war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide, and aggression, as well as theories by which individuals can be held responsible for crimes committed by groups or systems. We will also explore some important issues in international criminal procedure, and examine the many challenges to the effectiveness and legitimacy of international tribunals. Students will develop (in consultation with Professor Starr) their own research paper ideas, and the last few weeks of class will be focused on workshopping and developing those ideas.
