Cursusdoelen
After this course:
  • the student has enhanced knowledge and understanding of issues of international and European institutional law.
  • the student is able to conduct research and present the outcome of it in a written paper in English.
Inhoud
The institutional law of international organisations comprises those rules of law that govern their legal status, structure and functioning. Since this course is a capita selecta, a selection of the core issues in this field will be made, such as international legal personality and the powers of international organisations, their decisions and decision making, as well as the control of and by international organisations, including dispute settlement. After a thorough study of the selected issues, those issues will be analysed more in-depth with regard to one or more international organisations (for example the UN and WTO). Whilst the first half of the course will focus on international organisations in general, the second half of the course will be devoted to the European Union. The same issues will be addressed in both parts of the course. While studying the selected topics, the historical context and the societal forces that explain their existence and functioning will be discussed. The tension between the intergovernmental and supranational method of cooperation will serve as a leitmotiv throughout the entire course.

Not possible in combination with RGBOI0350 International European Institutional Law.

In addition, seminars aim to apply the knowledge gained on each topic to practical situations or specific examples reflecting the core themes of this course. Students' presentation and argumentation skills will be trained.
