Course description:

Serious environmental and economic crimes and violations of economic, social and cultural rights have often been neglected in criminal proceedings and reports of truth commissions that have followed in the wake of economic transitions or conflicts. Recommendations 46-47 from the Oslo Outcome Statement on Corruption involving Vast Quantities of Assets (June 14, 2019) are calling upon experts to conduct analysis and explore ideas that contribute on how to successfully address, with respect the sovereignty of States, some of the mentioned issues. For example, the establishment of an international special rapporteur for anti-corruption, the development of a protocol to UNCAC on corruption involving VQA, exploring the possibility of extending the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court to include corruption involving VQA, creating international commissions against corruption and impunity etc. The similar is applicable to environmental crimes.

The course together with the round-table at the end of the week is addressing mentioned topics with leading scholars and practitioners.

Young sholars and practitioners alongside (post)gradate students are welcomed.

Programme offers 4 ECTS points.
