International Law in the Age of Globalisation

4 ECTS / Semester / English

The aim of this course is for students is to gain an insight and critically reflect on the debate about the changes international law underwent under the impact of ‘globalization’ during the crucial years at the close of the Cold War, when the division of the world between the Western block, the communist block and the non-aligned movement came to an end. This will give the student a deeper understanding on some fundamental developments that have been and are changing the world’s legal order: the rise of human rights and self-determination, the revival of the UN collective security mechanism, humanitarian interventionism and the constitutionalization of the international order
