Violence, Crime, Justice

Picture of a man in a hoodie in front of barsThis theme encompasses a broad range of work relating to criminal activity, violence of different sorts, and the workings of justice systems dealing with them.

It includes the law of war, substantive and procedural criminal law, and emerging and transitional justice mechanisms within national, European and international fora. It ranges from well-established crimes, such as terrorism, to challenging the injustices of harms not usually recognised as criminal, such as the discriminatory drafting of law or operation of criminal justice institutions.
