Balkan Criminology, One-Week International Intensive Course, will be held from 30 March until 3 April 2020 at the Inter-University Center in Dubrovnik (IUC). The focus is on investigative journalism, civil society activism and their actual or potential interlinkages with criminal justice agencies countering organised crime, in order to build resilience in local communities of the Balkans. The basic idea behind the intensive one-week-course is to bring together reporters and activists, as well as criminal justice professionals and scholars, in order to jointly discuss their different approaches and targets when tackling organised crime, while identifying common ground and areas of overlap and cooperation. The week-long intensive program will not only provide participants with fruitful transdisciplinary and transprofessional discussions as well as a broadened view on organised crime, it will also equip them with access to a regional and international network of experts and colleagues, thus making them a part of a broader and seriously engaged community.
The program includes interactive key note lectures by leading figures from practice and academia with extensive exchange and discussion opportunity, participants’ presentations (impulse talks/papers), individual consultations and soft skills training. As a special feature the course offers: based on prior participant input and interest in a specific field, participants will have the opportunity to discuss individual topics one-on-one with renowned expert lectures in a very informal and open setting (so called consultation lunches).
The program offers 4 ECTS credits based on an attendance certificate issued by the course director and IUC Dubrovnik. Precondition is the regular attendance of the course program and delivery of a participant presentation in oral and written form (so called impulse talk/paper).
