The scope and purpose of this course is to introduce the central, basic and elementary knowledge of international law. The course provides an introduction to the system of norms, rules, institutions and procedures of international law. The methods of resolving international disputes, the bases of international jurisdiction and other substantive areas of international law are treated, including the laws governing the use of force and international environmental law, which will be explored basically. Further, the course explores the nature and the relevance of international law in the contemporary international world order (in the post-colonial and globalization era) including the role of the so-called Third World in the development of international and human rights 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!
