International Law Online Courser
About this course
· International law can be considered as the law of the international community, the law that governs relations between States.
· But it also relates to what international organizations do and, increasingly, it concerns individuals, corporations, NGO's and other non-state actors.
· As the world becomes more interdependent and more complex, and as new institutions are put in place to make international law more effective, international law has become an exciting, expanding field.
· Never before has it been so relied upon, used and developed.
· Despite their differences in size, power, culture, religion and ideologies, states rely on international law to cooperate and to coexist; they speak the language of international law and international law serves them as an important common language.
· This law course will extensively rely on judgments and advisory opinions of the International Court of Justice (ICJ), which is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations (UN).
What you'll learn
· How, and by whom, international law is made, by whom it must be respected, and how it is applied
· What happens when binding rules are breached and how is it possible to seek justice in this world
