International Crimes, Conflict and Criminology at at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Conflicts lead to looting, killing, recruitment of child soldiers, genocide – and even terrorism. They can also lead to cross-border crimes such as human trafficking, kidnappings and wildlife crimes. International organisations, NGOs and governments are confronted with questions about how to prevent and respond to these criminal acts, and how to deal with their harmful consequences. But a lack of knowledge means that effective responses often never get off the ground.

 

This Master’s programme is unique in several ways: literally, in that it’s not offered by any other university in the world. But also in its scope, because you’ll learn to combine insights and methodologies from several different disciplines: criminology, law, psychology, sociology and political science. And finally, VU Amsterdam is close to The Hague – home to the UN’s International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court – the legal capital of the world. This programme will truly prepare you for an international career in the field.

International Crimes, Conflict and Criminology

International Crimes, Conflict and Criminology is a one-year, full-time programme taught entirely in English. You’ll learn to analyse why people commit crimes in times of conflict (etiology), how to measure and investigate these crimes (prevalence), and what modes of Transitional Justice exist (reaction).

 

In this programme you’ll have active discussions about international criminal law, and you’ll get the chance to apply criminological, sociological and psychological theories and methods to real-world case studies. Those might include the genocide in Rwanda and the civil war in former Yugoslavia; conflict and terrorism in Syria, Libya and Iraq and transitional justice processes in Colombia, South Africa, Angola and Afghanistan.

 

The ultimate aim of the programme is to understand why and in what contexts criminal acts take place, and what the suitable responses should be. The courses use many different disciplines to approach conflict-related crimes – including insights from criminology, sociology, psychology, international criminal law and political science. But this isn’t just an academic programme – it’s training for your professional career. You’ll have the tools to look at the evidence objectively, get hands-on experience in the field, challenge criminological theories, draft up policies to fight crime, and develop strategies to prevent future crimes. Plus, you’ll get to visit all the important legal institutions in The Hague, while international experts regularly teach guest lectures and provide research seminars.

 

Teaching staff of the International Crimes, Conflict and Criminology programme conduct research at the Centre for International Criminal Justice (CICJ). As a Master’s student, you will be the first to hear about the outcomes of the research carried out, since the results will be incorporated in your lectures. If your grades are particularly high, you might be invited to take part in the research projects run by CICJ and the selective International Law Clinic course.

 

Throughout the year, you’ll have the opportunity to take part in guest lectures, excursions, documentary nights and study trips. These activities are organised either by teaching staff or by students who participate in the social committee.
