International Law and Asia
Last Updated Date:   10 June 2022

5 Credits,  Semester 1

Course Description:
How does a rising Asia relate to the international community and international law? The region's rich diversity of states and societies challenges assumptions of universality and also affects cooperation between states on issues such as human rights violations, environmental harm and the facilitation of freer trade. Changes in the international order also impact Asia, especially increasing Sino-American conflict and many of these changes may accelerate in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and the situation in the Ukraine. The seminar will discuss key issues of law and legal approaches in Asia, such as sovereignty, as well as provide for presentations by students on identified research subjects.
