Section: 01  

This course is a seminar on international cooperation and international law (IL) for students of international relations. The course's primary goal is to enhance students' understanding of how ILs facilitate or hinder international cooperation. The course has four modules: a) Introduction, b) IR theories on ILs, c) Application (Trade, Climate, Gender, Conflict), d) Future of ILs. The emphasis throughout the course is on the role of politics, understanding why ILs operate as they do, and recent episodes that illustrate the issues. Throughout the course, students will learn to produce concrete policy recommendations drawing from key research in the literature on ILs, practice giving others constructive feedback on peers' policy proposals and revise their own projects, and think critically about theories of international relations.
