Dozierende Barbara von Rütte (barbara.vonruette@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt International law is often characterized as a universal and progressive project. Critical and post-colonial perspectives have challenged this dominant narrative and criticized international law’s Eurocentrism. Against that background the seminar will reflect on the history, the key concepts and underlying assumptions and the structures of international law on the basis of different contemporary theoretical approaches to international law (TWAIL, critical legal studies, feminist approaches to international law and others). The seminar will focus on selected topics such as sovereignty and colonialism, human rights and universalism, borders and migration, citizenship and statelessness, equality and discrimination, the role of international organizations or climate change. On the basis of these topics the students will critically engage with contemporary theories of international law on the basis of selected readings, judgments and current examples.
Lernziele Students expand and deepen their knowledge in the field of international law and become familiar with different contemporary theories of international law. They are able to critically reflect on the history and foundations as well as the underlying assumption and structures of international law in a global context. Students learn to read academic legal texts, reflect on theoretical arguments relating to the functioning of international law and critically analyze judgments of international courts and tribunals.
Literatur Readings will be announced and made available on ADAM.
