Course aim

The role of international law in the 21st politics and relations between states and international organizations can and actually must be characterized as ambivalent.An intense ascertainment of the new legal topics is required as a recall of the philosophical, historical and comparative fundamentals of Law. In that regard, studying international law alongside with different subjects such as environment, information technology, intellectual property and energy seems indispensible.
