Today, international law regulates almost every field of human activity, including your last trip abroad, the food you eat or the health-care you receive. Even if you plan to practice law at a local level, you will be confronted with international law in one form or another. This course pursues two goals. First, the course allows you to deepen your knowledge of public international law and to reflect on the current state of the international legal system. Second, this course provides an advanced and comparative introduction to the complex relationships between international and domestic legal systems. We will analyse doctrinal positions, as well as the various ways in which sources of international law enter domestic legal systems and how these sources are interpreted, applied and contested domestically. Students are expected to have (or independently acquire) a solid knowledge of international law prior to the start of the course.
