The course examines the inter-relationships between politics and law in global affairs. Governments, inter-governmental institutions, non-governmental organisations and multinational corporations are engaged in a constant making and remaking of political and legal rules and procedures. For both practitioners and students of global governance, it is necessary to be able to analyse and interpret legal and political developments in a transnational context.
