Course Description

This course aims at introducing students to all the special areas of international law, including international human rights law, international humanitarian law, international environmental law, international investment law, etc. In doing so, it will provides students who are already familiar with the general principles of international law with advanced knowledge about the rules applicable to those special areas regulated by international law as well as the way they are interpreted in practice. In doing so, this course will introduce students to the variety of ways in which these special regimes interact with one another as well as the mechanisms of resolution of conflicts between regimes. This course will simultaneously offer an opportunity to reflect upon the systematicity of international law as a whole and the extent to which it could constitutes a ‘system'. For each session, students will be expected to make preliminary readings.
