This course is ideal for those interested in developing their knowledge of the origins, principles and relevance of international law.
Public International Law has traditionally been concerned with the structure and behaviour of sovereign states and intergovernmental organisations. In recent decades, however, international law has also progressively affected multinational corporations and individuals. Public international law has increased in use and relevance vastly over the twentieth century, due to a globalised world with an upsurge in global trade, environmental concerns, human rights violations, armed conflicts, and a growth in global communications.
