International and operational law has played a significant role in recent events across the globe. Incidents in locales such as Rwanda, Egypt, Libya, and Syria have mobilized the international community from both an operational and intellectual perspective. Using these incidents as backdrop, while also considering historical examples, students will gain a greater understanding of the worldwide legal implications of international and operational law and be encouraged to challenge the interpretation and application of those laws. In addition, the course will enable students to participate in academic discussion related to current events and provide the opportunity to analyze developing crisis in the international community.
COURSE REQUIREMENT: Class participation, an 800-word newspaper style opinion-editorial (op-ed) article, and an in-class group presentation examining selected recent international incidents.
