This course will be taught in conjunction with the equivalent postgraduate course. Due to practical considerations, enrolment will be strictly limited to 20 students from all sources - a limited number of places may go to postgraduate students.
The first section of the course will be devoted to general aspects of the operation of international organisations, the second section will focus on human rights and related issues, and the third section will mainly address trade, IP and environmental questions. The precise composition of the program will vary to some extent from year to year.
The classes will take place principally in various international organisations in Geneva. All classes and visits will be conducted in English and knowledge of French is not required.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Describe the international law applicable to selected international organisations and non-governmental organisations located in Geneva;
- Describe the interaction between various institutions located in Geneva and their role within the broader international legal system;
- Critically assess and evaluate selected areas of international law in which the selected United Nations organs and agencies and NGOs are active;
- Plan and execute legal research with independence in order to produce original scholarship.
