Program and courses International Law and Global Governance track

This program reflects how international legal order has been evolving structurally since 1945. What was once a singular and classical focus on inter-state (collective) security, can now be re-mapped as a three-pillar legal order roughly captured by the three categories: 1) International Law and International Relations; 2) Human Rights and Human Security; and 3) Global Sustainability and Environmental Law. By choosing your electives you specialize in your personal field of interest.
