This course focuses on two broad themes. The first concerns international law and how relations between states are regulated in international agreements and conventions. This also include the role of international organisations, especially the United Nations. The second theme regards human rights and its legal dimension, and economic, social, and cultural rights in international law.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
