Our teaching within the MA International Criminology is research oriented, using mainly qualitative (i.e. narrative, visual, sociotechnical, and affective) approaches. The themes of our classes revolve, amongst others, around the sociology of security in a global perspective, vulnerability and resilience, rightwing mobilisation, technologies of truth and visibility, rationalities of the law, as well as the fascination of violence and the radicalization of public spheres. The focus of analysis reaches from micropolitics of social spaces and institutions (such as cities, borders, or police) to global interventions (such as the International Criminal Court), to public events (such as political protests or attacks on urban grounds) to the logics of digital formats (such as algorithms and automated surveillance technologies).
