‘Balkan Criminology’ One Week Intensive Course

Balkan Crim­in­o­logy, One-Week In­ter­na­tion­al In­tens­ive Course, will be held from 2 un­til 6 Novem­ber 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).

More info about the course, as well as the par­ti­cip­a­tion form, are avail­able on the web­site.
