ライデン大学(Universiteit Leiden) による International Law In Action: Investigating and Prosecuting International Crimes の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



‘Investigating and Prosecuting International Crimes’ is the second course in Leiden University’s new series on International Law in Action. The first course covered international courts and tribunals in The Hague in general. This second course provides an insider perspective into the work of international criminal courts and tribunals. You will learn about the investigation and prosecution of international crimes in The Hague. Atrocities produce unspeakable forms of violence. We will explore whether and how international criminal justice contribute to what UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon called the ‘age of accountability’. The theory is, those who commit the worst of human crimes, are held accountable, whether they are rank-and-file foot soldiers or military commanders, whether they are lowly civil servants following orders or top political leaders. We will test how this can be done and if this is realistic. During this course, you will be offered a look into the ‘kitchen’ of the Hague international criminal courts and tribunals. You will learn how international criminal justice functions, who the actors are, what outcomes it produces, and how it can be improved. If you want to gain a better understanding of international criminal cases, like the Lubanga case, the ICC’s first ever trial, and the legal legacy of UN international criminal tribunals, then this course is definitely for you! This course is free to join and to participate in. There is the possibility to get a verified certificate for the course, which is a paid option. If you want a certificate, but are unable to pay for it, you can request financial aid via Coursera....

This course is a wonderful eye open for the sack of world peace.Even those who would be potential criminals in international criminal law are made to think twice before they could commit an offence.

Another excellent course by the Leiden University, which effectively immerses the student in the structure of the ICC. The teacher is very charismatic and the supporting material is very good.

The course was very informative and well structured. I was pleased with the level of difficulty and detail. The course isn't designed for just anyone interested in the topic but is more in depth.

interesting and good readings. It would be great, however, to have an advanced course as I was already knowledgable about the subject matter and had hoped for a bit more in depth look. great for those who have a some knowledge but are not experienced in the area. one suggestion is on the readings where there are large documents with an allotted time of 20-30 mins to say what parts of the document to read.

i dont know if it was me who was lost in the material, or if the layout was allover the place, i loved the topics individually but i didn't feel like i was building a solid knowledge base, like it wasnt adding up. got lost in many videos as well, not because they were hard but rather there weren't much links between the different segments. learned many things despite that and finished the course.
