POLI 359 - International Law

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: POLI 260 and POLI 275; or consent of instructor
This course will explore the nature of international law, its theoretical underpinnings and the actors it involves. In doing so, it will incorporate theoretical debates concerning the extent to which international law truly is “law,” and the challenges state sovereignty raise for compliance and enforcement. To put the mechanics of international law into context, the course will also examine specific applications, such as international human rights and environmental law, international criminal issues and the laws of war. Offered alternate spring semesters.
