FutureLearn: Right vs Might in International Relations

 with  Christian Tams

Over six weeks this course will deliver an awareness of the role of international law in disputes transcending national borders. It will centre on specific, high-profile disputes, with whose broad contours you are likely to be familiar. The sessions will include case studies on Guantanamo Bay, lethal drone strikes, weapons of mass destruction in the Syrian conflict, counter-piracy operations, international terrorism and investment disputes. The purpose of this course is to assess whether, and to what extent, international law has been a factor in the resolution of international controversies.

During this course you will begin to learn about the role and the limits of international law as a tool for influencing behaviour and for settling disputes. As part of this, you’ll get the chance to develop the strategic and critical thinking necessary to engage with legal problems and contemporary debates.
