As this Guide has well established, violations can occur through acts or omissions. They also have other or additional features, the analysis of which is relevant for understanding and interpretation purposes. Violations can be either of an individual or large-scale nature. In both cases, the degree of their seriousness can vary, and so can the degree of their systemic nature.
For instance, an individual violation can be gross without being the result of a systemic failure of an adequate policy or a systematic discriminatory practice.

Individual violations have often led to the identification of a broader issue of non-compliance with international obligations, and judicial and quasi-judicial bodies have in some instances ordered a systemic remedy, sometimes in the form of a legal or policy reform, when examining the case of an individual. The decisions of the Colombian Constitutional Court concerning the right to health constitute a good illustration of this. These examples show that a strict classification is often neither possible nor useful in practice.
Nevertheless, identifying various types of violations can have a more concrete relevance for practitioners as the nature and scope of violations may, in certain circumstances, have an impact on the remedies available at least at the regional and international levels. Compared to the individual communications mechanism, the inquiry procedure can be a more timely and more flexible response, particularly because it does not require the exhaustion of domestic remedies. Gross violations of ESC rights may sometimes reach the threshold of crimes under international law and thus to be subject to scrutiny by other bodies and jurisdictions.

After introducing such broader issues and perspectives the course moves on to a more detailed analysis of the substantive crime elements. Personal and structural circumstances excluding liability will also be covered, as will the basic principles of fair international criminal trials. Since enforcement of criminal liability may also take place in domestic jurisdictions, the course will discuss the legal principles of domestic jurisdiction applicable to universal crimes prosecution the territorial principle, etc.
The course includes an assessment of the impact of domestic prosecutions on impunity for participants in universal crimes. It concludes on the potential and limitations of international criminal justice. The course should enable students to understand the mechanism of international criminal law ICL and its key concepts. It should make students aware of important legal issues and current challenges pertaining to contemporary ICL. The course should furthermore enable students to acquire an independent knowledge-base for analyzing, discussing, and eventually pursue further advanced studies or do practical work within this field - internationally or domestically.
In particular, the course should enable students to solve concrete legal problems relating to the interpretation and application of core substantive law and related principles, by presenting legal arguments in a balanced and reasoned way.
