Criminal Justice is a one-year Master’s at the renowned Leiden Law School at Leiden University. The programme focuses on criminology, criminal law and their mutual relationship. It is unique in its cross-national and multidisciplinary scope.

Visit the website: http://en.mastersinleiden.nl/programmes/criminal-justice/en/introduction

Course detail

Criminal Justice is a one-year Master’s programme at the renowned Leiden Law School at Leiden University. This programme focuses on legitimacy and effectiveness of criminal justice systems around the world and the challenges they face in a globalising world. Applying a comparative perspective, criminal justice systems are analysed regarding their ability to deal with crimes that take place both within and beyond their national borders. Transnational crimes like human trafficking and terrorism increasingly demand coordinated criminal justice responses on a European or international level. The comparative study of criminal justice institutions therefore includes the study of supra-national bodies.

Comparative and multidisciplinary perspectives

The Criminal Justice Master distinguishes itself by its international comparative perspective, analysing criminal justice systems, legislation and policies in common law and civil law countries. The programme is unique both in its comparative and multidisciplinary focus. Students from all over the world with different backgrounds, such as Criminology, Social sciences, Law, Political sciences, and Philosophy, critically engage themselves with important questions in small-scale groups. Leiden Law School is located in two beautifully renovated national monuments in the historic heart of the medieval city of Leiden. Leiden is the place to study Criminal Justice because of its vicinity to the Hague: international city of peace and justice.

Purpose

Due to the Criminal Justice Master’s unique multidisciplinary and comparative perspective, graduates gain a deep understanding of the dynamics against which criminal justices processes take place. As the program provides students with a broad and solid background in the realm of Criminal Justice, they are widely deployable in a variety of national and international institutions. At the same time, they are offered plenty of space to pursue their own specific topics of interest through various practical assignments.

Format

This programme is interactive and taught in small groups resulting in compelling discussions with students from all over the world with different disciplinary and (legal) cultural backgrounds. As a result, you will benefit from an extremely rich and interactive learning environment. Another advantage is that the academic staff in this Master has close ties with the relevant Criminal Justice issues in practice. Apart from following lectures, you will also participate in fieldtrips to Dutch and international institutions such as the Netherlands’ Council of State, Europol and the European Parliament.

Careers

The Criminal Justice Master’s programme offered by the Leiden Institute of Criminal Law and Criminology is the gateway to an exciting national or international career. The programme is optimally designed to suit requirements for professional positions. Possible career perpectives are:

- Consultant for municipalities, NGO’s or other national or international organizations that deal with international crime and safety issues
- Policy maker for actors in the criminal justice system or government
- Policy maker for international organizations that deal with crime control
- Academic researcher

Security ranks high on both the societal as well as political agenda. The threat of terrorism, transnational organized crime, civil war, urban riots or natural disasters is making headlines almost every day and is a guarantee for political turmoil. Although from a factual perspective the risk of high-end security incidents is in most Western countries low, the risk perception is far more higher. When it comes to security and crisis, risk perception seems to be as important as actual risk assessments.

Visit the website: http://en.mastersinleiden.nl/programmes/crisis-and-security-management/en/introduction

Course detail

During the one year multi-disciplinary master program students will become familiar with the political and social dimensions of the governance of (in)security and crises. By analyzing security discourses, security actors, security practices and security outcomes students will become acquainted with the ‘wicked problem’ of security and crises topics in a complex and globalizing world.
As security is no longer a public good solely provided by state actors or public actors but the combined outcome of public actors, private security actors, civil society and citizens as well, the master program will focus on the multiplicity of actors engaged in defining and practicing security.

Further, as a result of the globalized and interwoven world of today in which incidents, images and messages travel within seconds from one part of the world to another part of the world, students will study current security and crisis challenges from a ‘glocal’ perspective: both global and local levels and especially the nexus of those levels.

Format

In the master’s program students will be confronted with the insights of various academic disciplines and a combination of theory and practice and skills relevant for a professional career in public or private security and crisis organizations. Students will become familiar with the causes of different forms of crises and threats to security, with patterns of responses and governance of these phenomena, and policies and strategies to prevent threats, incidents or crises. The Master thesis project provides students the opportunity to specifically focus on one particular type of crisis or security issue and how certain actors deal with it.

Careers

The combination of academic and professional skills taught in the master’s programme makes Leiden graduates excellent candidates for positions in national and international Public Administration as well as for managerial positions in the private sector. Many of them also find their way to consultancy organisations and other private companies in the field of crisis and security management.

This specialisation prepares students for a career in the rapidly expanding domain of local, national and international security and safety management. In recent years, there has been a rising demand for professionals with a background in crisis and safety management, both in the public and private sector. Students with this specialisation can apply for jobs in policymaking departments, local and provincial government, international organizations and NGOs, consultancy agents, and private industry.

Careers

Graduates of the Industrial Ecology programme will be able to analyse sustainability dilemmas in real life, to create and initiate innovative technological solutions, and to come up with tools and strategies for management and policy in the field of industrial ecology.

Industrial ecology is a new scientific field that provides graduates with promising opportunities in different fields:

- Intermediate functions in large companies considering sustainability issues
- System design functions in companies and governments
- Initiators of innovation in industry and government and non-government organisations
- Scientific research in the field of industrial ecology or related fields such as green engineering, environmental sciences, or innovation and transition management.

Some students will become industrial ecology scientists working at universities and research institutes, developing the field. Their profession will be to develop and teach thinking about sustainability and sustainable development, to the benefit of those who have to put this into practice.

Course detail

The Master of Science in International Relations and Diplomacy is a programme taught jointly by Leiden University’s Institute for Security and Global Affairs (Faculty Governance and Global Affairs), the Institute of Political Science (Faculty of Social Sciences) and the Netherlands Institute of International Relations Clingendael.

In the current era of global interdependence, collaborative efforts are needed to meet the most pressing challenges in international politics, security and economics. Increased transnational channels of communication, global trade and capital flows characterise an increasingly interconnected world of both nation states and non-state actors. The resulting challenges to global governance can be met most effectively by patterns of international and transnational co-operation and diplomacy.

The location of The Hague is beneficial for this master’s programme in terms of substantive focus and the various links to international institutions located in this city. As one of the partners, Clingendael’s objective is to promote the understanding of international affairs, and the institute devotes special attention to European co-operation, international security, and diplomacy.

Format

Students attend core courses in the fields of international relations and political science. They also take quantitative and qualitative methodological courses. Furthermore, students are provided with specialised knowledge and hands-on experience in the area of diplomacy and international organisation, and insights into the actual practice of international negotiation and diplomacy.

Teaching in this programme is highly interactive. Most classes are taught in a seminar format. Students are expected to actively prepare for and participate in classes. Because this programme involves classroom work, individual research, and written assignments, there is close consultation between students and staff.

Work placement

In the IRD programme, students have the opportunity of completing an internship at an international organisation (or attending additional specialised courses). The programme’s internship co-ordinator can assist students in finding suitable positions, but the responsibility to find an organisation lies with the student. The programme is concluded with the writing of a master’s thesis on a topic in international relations, international organisation or diplomacy.

Careers

The master’s programme prepares students specifically for careers in international diplomacy, international government and non-governmental organisations, national or international public administrations, ‘think tanks’ and research institutions, international interest associations or international business.

In view of the range of courses they attended, their analytical and research skills, possible internship experience, master’s thesis, and contact with experts in relevant fields, graduates of this programme possess a high level of academic education and preparation for relevant positions in international organisations, international politics, and diplomacy.

The programme also aims to prepare students for possible continued academic training within the framework of a doctoral programme.
