Sobre o curso

International Law in Action explains the functions of each international court and tribunal present in The Hague, and it looks at how these institutions address contemporary problems. On the basis of selected cases, and through interviews with judges and lawyers, you will explore the role of these courts and tribunals and their potential to contribute to global justice. The first module of the course will investigate how judicial settlement is different from other more political forms of dispute settlement, such as negotiation and mediation. It offers a brief historical overview and introduces the judicial and arbitral bodies based in The Hague. In the remaining modules you will learn about the functions of these courts and tribunals, and some of the challenges and prospects that they face. Three cross-cutting themes tie together all of these modules: (i) The interaction between law and politics; (ii) The continuing role of State consent; and (iii) The ability of international courts and tribunals to protect the public interest and global values. This course offers you an opportunity to gain a better insight into the functions and features of the courts and tribunals present in The Hague. You will gain a familiarity with each court or tribunal. You will develop realistic expectations of their capacity to address contemporary problems and an awareness of their limitations. You will also be able to discuss some of their most prominent cases. If you would like to have a better understanding of international law in action in The Hague, this is definitely the course for you! This course is free to join and to participate in. There is the possibility to get a verified certificate for the course, which is a paid option. If you want a certificate, but are unable to pay for it, you can request financial aid via Coursera...

This course was well-paced, interesting, and highly informative for someone who is new to international law and the roles of international courts. I recommend this class to folks who are looking to learn more about the different international courts, their roles, their challenges, and the rough outline of important elements of the progression of international law in the past century or so.

This course is getting really interesting. It´s my first one on this page and the videos and readings are really good and helpfull. They explain in an easy way all the concepts. The readings of the creation of the international courts and the evolution of some of them reflected on conferences are really interesting. This course is perfect for law students that are curious or want to learn more about international courts. Well done and thank you!
