This online course will examine International Criminal Law (ICL), with an emphasis on modern global criminality. First, we will explore the history and development of ICL, with special attention to the Ad Hoc International Tribunals and the International Criminal Court (ICC). The practical aspects of illegal behavior that extends beyond sovereign borders will be explored through analysis of modern crimes of international concern, such as terrorism financing, anti-money laundering and tax evasion. We will ask: how do international criminal networks finance themselves?  How are governments responding?  And what will the future of international crime look like? Notably, students will also engage in a detailed overview of the efforts from the international community to leverage the most critical tool we have for fighting international crime, the global monetary system.
