Human Rights and Citizenship
Human Rights and Citizenship analyses the multi-faceted and changing character of citizenship and nationality, discusses the relevance of citizenship for human rights protection and critically engages with the concept of ‘integration’.
Human Rights and the Border
Human Rights and the Border highlights the changing character of borders and identifies different categories of ‘migrants’ created by the law.
Internet Governance focuses on the legal, practical and political obstacles to regulation of the internet, and the challenges which its cross-border nature creates for individual states, especially given the evolution of threats to cyber security.
Climate Change Law
Climate Change Law discusses existing laws relevant to the causation and management of climate change, and the actors involved in making and enforcing these laws.
The program is concluded with two Current Isssues courses, in Migration (research-based) and Transnational law (legal analysis-based). Students can also choose to substitute course in Human Rights and Citizenship with the Street Law course where they would be teaching law at the secondary schools.
