Settlement of International Dispute: Diplomatic and Adjudicative Means - 2 units
(Instructor: Professor Cesare Romano, Loyola Law School)
At the beginning of the course, the instructor will introduce students to international law and its institutions and international dispute settlement in general.
International dispute settlement is traditionally divided into two areas:
1. Adjudicative-means settlement is done through law-based, binding bodies and procedures, such as international courts and tribunals and arbitration.
2. Diplomatic-means settlement encompasses a broad range of bodies and non-binding procedures such as negotiation, consultation, good-offices, inquiry and conciliation. Students of this course will study the various means of international dispute settlement and how they are used in practice in a given context. The case of Cyprus will provide examples of advantages and drawbacks of each method.
Selected issues in International Human Rights Law - 2 units
(Instructor: Professor Jaume Saura, University of Barcelona)
Since the end of WWII, and particularly after the end of the Cold War, human rights have become a core element of International Law and International Relations.
Cyprus, a member of the United Nations, the Council of Europe and the European Union, participates fully in this body of International Law in addition to its own particular situation as a divided state. The course will focus on the content and procedures of international human rights law both at universal (U.N.) and regional (C.o.E., E.U.) level. It will emphasize cases and situations affecting the Republic of Cyprus and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus before organs such as the Human Rights Committee and tribunals such as the European Court of Human Rights.
