For students and practitioners everywhere, the Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies (University of Leuven) and the Dean Rusk International Law Center (University of Georgia School of Law) are delighted to announce a new opportunity to study international law and global governance. Applications are welcome for a brand-new Global Governance Summer School, spanning 3 weeks at the centuries-old University of Leuven, located in a beautiful city a short train ride from Brussels and easily accessible to many European capitals. Students in law and related disciplines, from the United States, Europe, and across the globe, are welcome to enroll. All students will receive a certificate, and U.S. law students also may earn 4 American Bar Association-approved credits.
Deadline: April 4, 2016
Through lectures, discussions, and group research projects, students will explore global governance – how state, regional, and international legal regimes, plus individuals, corporations, intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations, networks, and other nonstate actors, interact. A range of global challenges will be discussed, such as trade and sustainable development, peace and security, trafficking and other crimes, intellectual property, the environment, human rights and the rule of law, and migration.
Four cutting-edge, English-language courses will be given. In addition, the summer course offers field trips to European and international institutions in Brussels and Luxembourg and an expert conference on global governance in Brussels. The summer school aims to bring together students from all over the world and different disciplines fostering interdisciplinary and intercultural dialogue.
This summer school is intended for:
• Advanced students in international law, international relations, international political economy, international and European studies
• Practitioners and policy experts from the international policy community who want to update their knowledge on current developments in global governance and international law
U.S.-based law students are eligible to earn 4 American Bar Association-accredited hours in the three weeks of courses.
