Summary

International Law and Global Governance provides the opportunity to engage with a dynamic and responsive approach to contemporary global problems through law and legal institutions. It examines areas such as the use of force, climate change, global migration, the role of judicial settlement and the right to development, which each raise urgent questions as to the effectiveness of current governance and regulatory regimes.

International law is increasingly a matter of concern for a wide range of stakeholders, whether public or private bodies and at international, national and local levels. Given contemporary and future global challenges – for example, protecting human rights and security and the conservation of resources – the significance of global governance is growing in a multipolar world.

Together with international scholars and students, we will critically examine and apply the policies, theories, principles and rules of international law to novel problems, real-world and hypothetical scenarios. We’ll consider the impact of legal and political institutions such as the UN Security Council and the International Court of Justice.

This programme will enhance your understanding and challenge preconceptions of the complex legal and political nature of international law-making and governance. It will explore the often competing concepts that infuse the subject of international law.
