International Criminal Law Job in Amsterdam
The Faculty of Law at the Free University of Amsterdam is looking for an Assistant Professor in Criminology (Vacancy number 1.2008.00167, www.vu.nl/vacatures). This is an unusual position because the job seems targeted at servicing a new master profile International Crimes and Criminology. According to the announcement, the programme will take an interdisciplinary approach to international crimes such as war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and other gross human rights violations. The aim of the programme is to measure and map the prevalence of international crimes; to define and conceptualize them, to map the consequences and estimate the costs; to examine the causes and analyze ways to effectively prevent, stop and react to this type of criminality. The master programme is closely interlinked with the research program on international crimes and criminology which has recently been launched.
