Leerdoelen General module on public international law intended to provide students with extended knowledge and understanding of general concepts, issues and certain areas of public international law. In working groups students will focus on the practical application of this knowledge and understanding in complex situations. They will learn to distinguish the legally relevant aspects of cases and situations and to argue positions on the basis of international law.
Omschrijving In this module the main doctrines of public international law are discussed in lectures in which positive law and its historical background forms the basis for a discussion of the contribution of international law to the resolution of international conflicts and to managing (new) international challenges of an economic, ecological or humanitarian nature. In the working groups concrete situations will be addressed and students will be expected to discuss and argue the legally relevant aspects. Topics that will be discussed include sources, subjects, jurisdiction, immunities, state responsibility, international organizations, peaceful dispute settlement, the use of force in international relations, the law of the sea, international human rights law and international environmental law.
