Cursusdoelen

  • the student is able to conduct research and present the outcome of it in a written paper in English.
Inhoud
International organizations impact our lives in more significant ways than we often realize. But how do they work? How can member states control the decision-making of such international organizations and how do they vote? What is the legal status of the decisions adopted? How are disputes between states settled and do citizens have any role in international organizations?

Although international organizations obviously differ in terms of the objectives they pursue, the powers they have acquired, the fields in which they are active and in their size, they are at the same time confronted with largely the same institutional issues. After a thorough study of such issues in general, these will be addressed in more concrete ways for selected international organizations, most notably the UN. The course focuses on the institutional law of international organizations, but historic, societal, political and economic contexts will be included as well to explain their existence and functioning.

And then there is the European Union, with a directly elected parliament and wide competences to adopt legislation, an a-typical international organization. The second half of the course zooms in on the EU’s institutional system, addressing fundamental issues such as membership, competences and judicial protection. The overarching question here is whether the European Union still fits in a model of international organizations.

Not possible in combination with RGBOI0350 International European Institutional Law.

Seminar

Algemeen
The introduction of each topic in a lecture will be followed by one/two seminars per topic.

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.

Voorbereiding bijeenkomsten
In the seminar sessions, the emphasis will be on class discussion. As a basis for these discussions, questions are set for each seminar.
