International Law and Global Governance provides the opportunity to engage with a dynamic and responsive approach to contemporary global challenges through law and legal institutions. It examines topics such as the use of force, climate change, global migration, international justice, and the right to development, which raise urgent questions about the effectiveness of current governance and regulatory regimes worldwide.
International law is increasingly a concern for a wide range of stakeholders, whether public or private bodies, international or national organisations and institutions. Given contemporary and future global challenges – for example, protecting human rights and security, and conserving natural resources – the significance of global governance, as well as its contestation, is growing in a multipolar world.
Together with international scholars and students, we will critically examine and apply the policies, theories, principles, and provisions of international law to novel problems, and real-world, and hypothetical scenarios. We will consider the impact of legal and political institutions such as the UN Security Council and the International Court of Justice, and we will investigate the dynamics of power relations among states and between states and non-state actors.
This Programme will enhance your understanding and challenge preconceptions of the complex legal and political nature of international law-making and governance. It aims to explore the often-competing concepts that infuse the subject of International Law providing you with a clear and specialised knowledge of the most pressing and challenging aspects of this area of law.
