Course Summary

The actions of individuals and states in international relations raise crucial questions of legality. This has been seen in recent years in relation to wars and state interventions, migration of peoples, and justice and retribution. This programme is designed to provide you with an advanced understanding of key issues in the place and role of law in international affairs.

Overview

The programme is a joint offering of the Schools of Politics and International Relations and Law. It provides a rare opportunity to study the nature of international law and its application within the field of global politics. You gain a detailed understanding of the theory and practice of public international law and of how those principles and practices apply to relations between states.
