This course deals with the achievements and challenges in the field of preventing, investigating and prosecuting conflict-related sexual violence. Topics include the emergence of international concern regarding conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV) and the scope, nature and consequences of these crimes.
During this course, students will look at human trafficking and sexual violence in conflict, both in their own right and together. This will contribute to a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges involved and to finding ways forward in addressing these timely crimes.
The aim of the course is to discuss the main concepts of International Relations, such as world system, interstate relations, international organisations and transnational issues like environmental degradation, climate change, inequality and gender-based biases.
