Justice internationale approches politique et juridique : International Criminal Prosecution and Transitional Justice

The course looks into the issue of justice in a post-conflict context or following the fall of an authoritarian regime by looking into two approaches, that of international criminal law and that of transitional justice. The seminar on International Criminal Prosecution looks into the concept of international crime and its different categories. In the light of case studies before international tribunals, the course dissects the problems of defining core international crimes and the intricate question of attributing responsibility for international crimes before international criminal courts and tribunals. The seminar on transitional justice introduces the concept and its mechanisms that aim to address past human rights violations and ways to move forward. It will focus on institutional reform, reparation and truth-seeking measures with an emphasis on truth commissions from a comparative perspective. The students will be able to analyze problems related to past abuse of human rights in post-conflict societies and will apply what they have learned by organizing and participating in an exercise simulating a truth commission.
