International Law

GOVT 331
Spring 2012
Section: 01  
Certificates: Environmental Studies, International Relations

International law plays an increasingly important role in global politics.This course will examine the interaction of law and politics at the international level and how each influences the other. The course will examine the sources of international law; the roles played by international organizations such as the United Nations, the World Trade Organization, and the International Criminal Court; and the roles played by various participants in global governance, including both state and nonstate actors. We will focus on several key issue areas, such as human rights, economic governance, and the use of force, war crimes, and terrorism. Today it is impossible to completely grasp global politics without an understanding of international law. This course is offered to bridge that gap.

Essential Capabilities: Speaking, Writing
The course will encourage students to develop their writing and speaking skills through assignments that include a research paper and oral presentation.
