LAW 383 - Mass Atrocities Seminar.


This interdisciplinary course touches upon criminal law, international law, film, literature, psychology, jurisprudence, and political science. One aim is to think about the role of law and legal institutions in societies that have suffered gross human rights violations. 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
