The course deals with the international regulation of war and peace. Current international law is designed to guarantee the peaceful co-existence of states and peoples. However, wars and conflicts still happen around the world. Against this background, the students in the course will familiarize themselves with the three subfields of international law which are crucial for the understanding of international conflicts and their settlement:

• International Dispute Settlement deals with the peaceful solution of international conflicts by the means of negotiation, mediation, conciliation, inquiry, arbitration and international tribunals.

• International Security Law is about the prohibition of the use of military force and the regulation of the ius ad bellum, the right to go to war in exceptional circumstances (e.g. Resolutions by the Security Council of the United Nations or self-defence).

• International Humanitarian Law regulates the conduct of war, the ius in bello. In this part of the course, students will learn about the status of different groups of people in armed conflict, the protection of vulnerable groups and the law of targeting.

Students will be asked to present a historical or current case (e.g. Falkland War, Syrian Civil War) and in a directed group discussion will find out how actors on the international scene have dealt or deal with the various legal problems arising.
