Topics in Policy Analysis (Half-Term): International Justice

SPI 594B

Info tab content
This course is about the politics, ethics, and policy of war crimes tribunals. How do law and politics interact? Why do states pursue international justice, and how sincere are they? Is war itself a crime? Do states have the right to punish war criminals, and what makes such efforts succeed or fail? We look not just at Nuremberg, but also at efforts arising from World War I, World War II in Asia, and the wars in the former Yugoslavia.
