University of Graz

The Graz Institute for Criminal Law, Criminal Court Case Law and Criminology of the Karl Franzens University is an academic institute and part of the already in 1778 established Faculty of Law. The Institute disseminates knowledge and promotes the understanding of criminal law as it stands and as it is evolving, with a particular view on contemporary issues.

Its main focus in teaching and research lies in the field of national as well as international criminal law and justice, among that it deals with substantive international criminal law and the organisation of international judicial bodies, in particular, the ad hoc Tribunals for the Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda as well as the International Criminal Court. Furthermore it provides profound lectures in those areas that are inseparably related to the understanding and the current development of criminal law such as current national as well as international adjudication, legislation initiatives and the cohesions of subject matters and society.
