Another aim is to consider what sorts of legal responses are appropriate to deal with perpetrators and also meet the needs of victims and survivors. Case-studies include: Nazi Germany, Bosnia, Rwanda, South Africa, Sierra Leone, Cambodia, the U.S. post-9/11; as well as complex themes such as child perpetrators, sexual violence, and the defense of “following orders.”Two hours.Mr. Drumbl Not offered in 2012-2013.
