Program description

Masters in Law: Law and Politics of International Security

Develop a broad view of international security

The program is based on the assumption that international law cannot be properly understood outside its political context, whereas contemporary international politics cannot be fully grasped without a solid knowledge of international legal institutions. It offers a multidisciplinary approach to the rapidly changing field of international peace and security. It includes topics such as the United Nations system of collective security, the transformation of war (including catastrophic terrorism and other forms of political violence), human rights protection, the development of international criminal tribunals and humanitarian law.

The program has three basic characteristics:

  • a multidisciplinary approach, combining international law and international relations;
  • a thematic focus on international security;
  • an interactive and international academic community where staff and students are engaged in research and the development of knowledge.
