Globalisation has brought about a situation where lawyers are now required to grapple with national, international, European, and transnational laws when they apply norms. In the two-year research-oriented Master's Programme in Global Governance Law (GGL), you develop the skills to understand and deal with the challenges of globalising law.
You study law and globalisation, public international law, European Union law, global administrative law, advanced human rights law and examine for example international institutions, decision-making and governance in the EU. You can also choose optional studies from a wide variety of courses in other Faculty of Law programmes, or engage in interdisciplinary studies in Global Politics and Communication.
In the GGL Programme, ‘law’ is conceived in a broad manner as something that goes beyond ‘law’ as it has been traditionally understood in the international sphere – as norms produced by states and international organisations. In this programme, for example, various codes of conduct, recommendations, opinions and forms of self-regulation are also taken into account. In essence, the GGL Programme reaches beyond public international law to cover other actors and normativities including networks, expert bodies and governance structures not limited to the official relations between governments of states. Its interest is in the new power and governance structures – both public and private - that are used to govern the world today.
