Summer School Public International Law

The Summer School Public International Law will take place from 11-15 July 2016, which will be right after the UCIS Summer School from 4-8 July 2016. If you would like to know more you can visit the webiste. For the UCIS Summer School program click here.

The Public International Law course will look at the role of international law in responding to today’s global challenges, such as the Russian activities in Ukraine, the legal aftermath of Srebrenica, the ongoing conflict in Syria and Iraq, and climate change negotiations. These issues will be used to examine the nature and function of international law, its sources and subjects, and questions of jurisdiction and immunities, state responsibility and the responsibility of international organizations

The international community is currently faced with multiple fundamental challenges like climate change, international terrorism, and civil wars. This Summer School will investigate the role of public international law in dealing with these matters.
