Course Description

Welcome to the fascinating world where law meets diplomacy! This course is your passport to understanding how nations interact, cooperate, and sometimes clash globally. We will explore the rules of the road – international laws – that govern everything from trade and environmental protection to human rights and conflict resolution. But rules are just one part of the story. We will also explain the diplomacy, the art of negotiation and communication that brings these laws to life.

Imagine being a fly on the wall at high-stakes international meetings, witnessing the delicate dance of words and actions that can avert wars or forge historic agreements. This course will give you the tools to understand the intricate interplay between legal frameworks and diplomatic maneuvers. You will see how seemingly abstract concepts like “state sovereignty” or “humanitarian intervention” translate into real-world consequences for people and nations around the globe.
