Event description

Description

Professor Andreas Schloenhardt is Professor of Criminal Law in the TC Beirne School of Law and a Professorial Research Fellow at the University of Vienna, Austria. He is also a consultant to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in Vienna, Austria, and a visiting professor at the University of Zurich and the University of St Gallen, Switzerland. Andreas’ principal areas of research include criminal law, organised crime, migrant smuggling, trafficking in persons, narco-trafficking, terrorism, criminology, and immigration and refugee law.

This course demonstrates the teaching-research nexus in action and uses a range of innovative teaching and learning strategies with a highly-engaged student cohort. It is specifically designed to encourage and improve undergraduate student research and pave the way to research higher degrees and academic presentations and publishing. Students undertake directed study on selected issues relating to trafficking in persons and smuggling of migrants. Students gain a general understanding of the pattern of, and the policies and laws relating to trafficking in persons and migrant smuggling, liaise with key stakeholders in the field, and have an opportunity to present their research findings to an academic audience and publish their written material. The course is also designed to equip students with advanced research, communication, presentation, writing and team-work skills, specifically in this field of study.

The course is highly interactive with students leading a significant part of each class. Class begins with a short briefing by one of the course coordinators, followed by student presentations on their research topic. The presentation is then discussed by the audience before the presenter receives feedback from his/her peers and the course coordinator. Several guest presenters also deliver classes.

In Semester 2, 2017, this course will be offered in conjunction with the University of Vienna. Seven students from the University of Vienna will participate alongside eight UQ law students. Topics covered in Semester 2 include routes and methods of smuggling of migrants, the prostitution-trafficking in persons nexus, and the identification of victims of trafficking in persons. The course will be taught intensively between 25 and 29 September 2017.

Visitors are welcome for an hour, a session or longer. View the programme to select when you would like to visit and email a.schloenhardt@law.uq.edu.au to advise of your expected arrival time.
