This class has two goals: to introduce students to international organizations, networks and other forms of global governance, and to provide the space for students to write a 30+ paper on an international topic.
We will examine how international organizations and transnational networks develop international law and use legal and non-legal tools to shape domestic practices. While international organizations have limited enforcement capabilities, “almost all nations observe almost all principles of international law almost all of the time.” Drawing from legal and social science literatures, we will study how hard and soft international law shape the conduct of governments, courts, NGOs, expert networks and mass publics. We will investigate mechanisms that generate conformity and non-conformity with international norms, including coercion, political economy considerations, learning and socialization.
