Democracy, Human Security and International Law

This course will challenge you to critically examine these three key areas. In addition, you will be required to work through the complex practical difficulties of applying the law within the economic and political contexts from which it has evolved. This balanced approach including both theory and practice will equip you to deal with the real-life negotiation that goes on in the authentic lawmaking and practice in your future career or further study. This course will expose you to some of the most pressing legal issues of the day. You will examine some of the ideologies and subjects which have shaped the early twenty-first century - the impact of democracy and the issue of security in their international contexts. As you approach these challenging topics, you will benefit from the excellent instruction of our departmental staff, all of whom are experts in their chosen fields of study. They will provide the necessary guidance and support needed for you to identify and pursue your own specialist topic which may form the basis for your future career. Upon graduation, you will possess a level of expertise that is highly sought-after in law firms, government departments, think-tanks, international institutions and non-governmental organisations alike. In addition, you will be well-equipped with a wide range of general skills - such as research, analysis, argument-construction and many more - which will make you a highly desirable candidate for almost any postgraduate employment position.
