Course Description:

This seminar is an introduction to the analysis of the rules and institutions of international law using the framework of international relations theory. It will begin with an introduction to the principal theoretical schools and their perspectives on international law, as well as some of the methodological issues involved in assessing empirical research. We will then examine recent scholarship on topics such as international trade and investment, international courts and tribunals, international criminal law, the laws of war, human rights, and environmental regulation. The seminar will emphasize questions such as compliance with international law, the role of reciprocity and sanctions, the relationship of domestic and international politics, and the design of effective institutions. There is no formal prerequisite, but prior exposure to international law and/or international affairs is recommended.
