ILO L209M: International Treaty Behavior: A Perspective on Globalization
This seminar examines treaty behavior over a broad spectrum of subject areas—including security, environment, trade, and human rights. Approaches to international agreements affect economic, security, and foreign policy in this interdependent world. The seminar examines IL and IR theories of compliance. It explores exceptionalism in treaty behavior—American and other nations. A simulation will familiarize students with the process of treaty negotiation and drafting. The seminar offers students the opportunity to do research in depth on one or more treaties, or the behavior of a given nation or group of nations under several treaties. Prior law courses helpful but not required.
