Program description

Understand international law in its political context. At Law and Politics of International Security you study the interaction between international legal institutions and international politics.

Issues of international peace and security are becoming increasingly important in legal, political and administrative practice. The concept of 'international security' is no longer confined to traditional issues of war and peace, but now also covers topics such as terrorism, criminal law, the protection of human rights and 'human security'. This one-year Master's specialization in Law and Politics of International Security gives students with backgrounds in international law or social sciences the opportunity to specialize in an increasingly crucial field of studies. The programme is based on the assumption that international law cannot be properly understood outside its political context, whereas contemporary international politics cannot be fully grasped without a solid knowledge of international legal institutions. The programme offers a multidisciplinary approach to the rapidly changing field of international peace and security. It includes topics such as the United Nations system of collective security, the transformation of war, human rights protection, the development of international criminal tribunals and humanitarian law.
