About

Learn to navigate a world in which rules and systems of governance are becoming increasingly informal and transnational. Gain a versatile and focused view on international law and global governance by investigating the impact of transnational business, migration and global security on human rights, sustainability and environmental law, and international law and relations. 

Visit the Visit programme website for more information

Overview

Gain expertise in three main areas of study; international law and international relations, human rights and human security, and global sustainability and environmental law. Alongside these pillars, you can tailor your specialization(s) to match your career goals. 

  • The courses are structured as a three-pillar legal order roughly captured by three categories: (1) International Law and International Relations; (2) Human Rights and Human Security; (3) Global Sustainability and Environmental Law
  • The program has an interdisciplinary approach and law-in-context focus:  not only will learn about relevant treaties and landmark cases, but also about how political institutions, economic actors, and civil society shape the way in which laws are produced and applied at the international level.
  • All teachers are highly qualified and enthusiastic academics with additional expertise emanating from their connections to international legal practice. The latest research is continuously fed into learning, so you are confronted with topics and ideas from the forefront of (meta-)legal research.

Career prospects

The Master's program in International Law and Global Governance qualifies you to pursue a challenging career in legal practice and/or in an advisory function. Potential career paths include posts within national and international public administration, national and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs), the diplomatic service, European and international courts, multinational enterprises, and advocacy.
