Recommended for route(s):

[ Academia ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] International Law: Public International Law

Why it is relevant for ...

[ Academia ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] as a Relevant Course outside SLS for those interested in International Conflict : Public international law often involves some element of human rights work. Students should consider taking 1 or more classes focused on these issues in order to obtain a basic understanding of international human rights law. This course explores questions surrounding international conflict and military action.

General course Description:

Issues both in contemporary just war theory and political philosophy. Relevant questions include: Can conscription ever be justified? If not, is there anything wrong with targeting poor people as part of efforts to recruit a 'volunteer' military? If, during war itself, combatants act in ways prohibited by the moral requirements governing war's conduct, then does it make any moral difference whether they were acting as ordered? And how do we identify these moral requirements in the first place? For example, what distinguishes a legitimate target from an illegitimate one? What determines whether military action is disproportionate? What, if anything, is morally distinctive about terrorism? Explores the complexities behind these questions and others, with a view to evaluating the potential answers to them.

Course Style: A Substantive/ Perspective course looks at law from an external or non-traditional standpoint.
