You will start by considering the nature and development of the principles of international law before examining the role played by international organisations and non-governmental organisations.
You will then focus on areas that challenge the application and effectiveness of the principles of international law such as security issues and humanitarian interventions and consider international law in its wider context.
The Exploring the Boundaries of International Law programme delivered by The Open University uses contemporary case studies to explore the boundaries of international law.
During your studies you will develop and consolidate a range of important postgraduate legal skills. Your studies will require you to critically engage with complex legal issues in the international environment. You will also learn to develop arguments based on evidence and interrogate case studies to form reasoned judgements. Throughout the module you will undertake evaluation and synthesis of new and complex concepts and information within an international and multidisciplinary environment. You will learn to communicate your findings and conclusions effectively. You will also develop your ability to undertake independent learning and research and analyse complex issues systematically and creatively.
You can take this module on its own or as part of our Master of Laws qualification.
