This programme introduces students to the issues at the intersection of International law, particularly International Law and European law; ethics; and international politics. The course covers the application of these areas to problems such as poverty reduction; international trade; war and terrorism; climate change; and democracy.
The programme is ideal for candidates from the NGO world who wish to improve their academic credentials, and students from the humanities and social sciences who want to take Law courses. The course should also be of interested to graduates in public or European law who want to deepen their understanding of issues that they have previously encountered only within a legal framework.
The programme contains a broad range of optional modules from the Law, Politics and Philosophy departments. Students may choose between a dissertation or practice-based dissertation. Dissertations may be supervised by any of the three schools involved in the MA, or joint-supervision may occur for interdisciplinary dissertations
