The course aims to systematically and critically introduce the foundations of PIL, is taught by teachers with diverse background and expertise in the field. The history, nature, legal persons and how PIL interacts with domestic law are considered in-depth. These are followed by topics such as jurisdiction, sovereignty, role of the United Nations, law of state responsibility and peaceful settlement of disputes between states. Areas such as law of sea, use of force and self-defence are covered to enable students to understand why and how international law regulates the behaviour of its actors with respect to some specific subject areas.
