International Law & International Relations Theory

One of the most interesting and productive veins of recent international law scholarship involves interdisciplinary work between political scientists, economists, and legal academics. This seminar will explore some of this scholarship, including articles discussing the institutional design of international organizations, two-level game analysis (where bargaining takes place simultaneously in international negotiations and domestic politics), and decentralized approaches to enforcing international law. The course is designed to introduce students (particularly those who may be interested in academics) to this field of scholarship. The seminar is also designed to be highly participatory with students frequently leading the discussions.


Please note that course organization and content may vary substantially from semester to semester and descriptions are not necessarily professor specific. Please contact the instructor directly if you have particular course-related questions.
