POLS 366 - International Law
This course looks at the historical evolution, development, and functions of international law. The course showcases the specific religious and cultural traditions that connect with the history and politics of some selected current societies, and illustrates how law emerges from these traditions. It explores how Western culture created the foundations of international law and how the diversity of human experience in today’s world contributes to controversies in international law, particularly in issues and conceptions of justice and human rights. Students will gain the tools to analyze international law and explore the impact of power differentials between states as they relate to practices, beliefs, histories, traditions, and/or lived experiences of select societies in today’s culturally diverse world.
