IMARC is a two-year International Master’s in Advanced Research in Criminology involving four European universities. The growing concerns about a growing influx of refugees, migrants and threats of radicalisation, and related problems about urban security, cybercrime, and corporate malfeasance as well as the increase of hate crimes, racism, xenophobia, and violation of human rights have dramatically changed the crime control agenda in Europe. This current concern raises issues of how to balance human rights and needs for security. The aim of this programme is to equip students for current demands in the field of border-crossing, security and social justice. IMARC addresses these threats from a truly European perspective. Both in a theoretical and in a practical perspective, IMARC offers modules about Theory & Methodology, Geo-Politics, Cities and Urban Transformations, Inclusion and exclusion, Migration, Human Smuggling and Trafficking, Culture and Hybrid Identities, Radicalisation and extremism, European Union Law and Policy on Justice and Home Affairs, and Regulation and Control. The programme starts at EUR and students will take several basic theoretical and methodological courses in criminology, focusing on international criminology in general and border crossing, security and social justice. Students will choose a specialization track at one of the three Universities in the second semester. Students may move to another University or location in the third semester for an internship or to do fieldwork for their thesis.
