International law is in the midst of a profound revision. Traditional theories are being challenged by more contemporary approaches, many of them drawn for the social sciences. This seminar will examine the work of political scientists and legal scholars to see how they inform fundamental questions in international law. Why do states enter into international agreements? Why do they create international organizations? When do states comply with international obligations? What kind of state conduct is more (or less) likely to be influenced by international law? To address these questions, we will look both to diverse theoretical perspectives, and to concrete empirical applications from issue areas such as trade, human rights, the environment and security.
