The turmoil that hit the Netherlands last week when its government prohibited a Turkish minister to campaign for a referendum in Turkey has made both national and international headlines. Behind the news lies the question of whether the Dutch government had the right to deny the Turkish minister the freedom of speech. Is this a human rights issue? Or is this a diplomatic issue? Or perhaps an international relations issue? Ocurrences like this is where the complexity of International Law becomes obvious. As we can not view international law separately from politics or international relations, the major specialisation Philosophy, Politics and International Law that we have developed at UCG is ideally suited for those students who wish to obtain an interdisiplinary approach to complex international challenges.
