How are war and justice regulated in times of international turmoil? How can the international community develop effective governance mechanisms, including law, to better honour peace as a fundamental human right?

In the Public International Law programme, you will gain a thorough understanding of the legislation that governs international relations in an increasingly complex, interdependent global society.

The Peace, Justice and Development specialisation will cover a wide range of legal disciplines that affect international society, including:

  • criminal law
  • human rights law
  • peace and security law
  • dispute settlement
  • investment law
  • economic law
  • sustainable development law

In this programme, you will study various academic literary texts and will analyse international legal instruments, as well as jurisprudence in the relevant fields. You will be trained to develop skills to integrate the distinctive branches of international law and to formulate an independent opinion on legal questions relating to war, peace and the quest for justice (both substantively and procedurally)
