Module content and teaching

Principal aims

This is an introductory module in International Law. The purpose of the module is to offer, within a broad historical perspective, an approach to the study of the legal dimensions of international political, economic and social problems. The module will seek to test the hypothesis that an adequate explanation of the most diverse international problems cannot exclude the study of law. But, since law in international affairs plays a role that in many respects is different from that played by law in domestic settings, the module will ultimately focus on the distinctive character of international legal phenomena.
