Research at CICJ focuses on legal, empirical and theoretical aspects of international crimes and international criminal justice. Building on both legal and criminological research tools, CICJ takes an interdisciplinary approach, focusing on the following three areas of research:
- How to map and measure the prevalence of international crimes
- How to explain the causes of these crimes
- How to tailor effective responses to these crimes
Each of the research projects below focuses on one or more of these aspects.
