À propos du cours

International Law in Action explains the functions of each international court and tribunal present in The Hague, and it looks at how these institutions address contemporary problems. On the basis of selected cases, and through interviews with judges and lawyers, you will explore the role of these courts and tribunals and their potential to contribute to global justice. The first module of the course will investigate how judicial settlement is different from other more political forms of dispute settlement, such as negotiation and mediation. It offers a brief historical overview and introduces the judicial and arbitral bodies based in The Hague. In the remaining modules you will learn about the functions of these courts and tribunals, and some of the challenges and prospects that they face. Three cross-cutting themes tie together all of these modules: (i) The interaction between law and politics; (ii) The continuing role of State consent; and (iii) The ability of international courts and tribunals to protect the public interest and global values. This course offers you an opportunity to gain a better insight into the functions and features of the courts and tribunals present in The Hague. You will gain a familiarity with each court or tribunal. You will develop realistic expectations of their capacity to address contemporary problems and an awareness of their limitations. You will also be able to discuss some of their most prominent cases. If you would like to have a better understanding of international law in action in The Hague, this is definitely the course for you! This course is free to join and to participate in. There is the possibility to get a verified certificate for the course, which is a paid option. If you want a certificate, but are unable to pay for it, you can request financial aid via Coursera...

The fact that knowledgeable people have put together such a programme is a very high score. Secondly the rate and pace at which the videos and lecture notes have put together and presented is a high score. The supplementary readers, some of which can be downloaded and studied at oe's own pace is very laudable. The end of week test is well structured and no matter how you might have read and viewed the videos, one still need some time to grasp everything. The end of course examinations recieve very high score from me

Great Course! I would love to take a specialization of international law, sort of like a Master of International Law certificate (MILC) rather than a LLM which is an official degree title from many universities. International Law in Action should be the first two course needed to complete the International Law Specialization.
