2015. Each student will choose a different casestudy. Students will have to describe the ongoing migration dynamics associated with environmental changes in that region. The case-studies should be prepared with a view to publication. See the guidelines of the State of Environmental Migration for further guidance. Pedagogical method : Interactive classes, including guest speakers. Course Description : Massive population displacements are regularly forecasted as one of climate change's most dramatic consequences. The nexus between environmental change and migratory dynamics are however far more complex than the usual causal and direct Relationship portrayed by media and policy-makers. Objective of the course : building upon extensive ﬁeldwork, this class aims to examine the reality of migratory ﬂows associated with environmental disruptions – those induced by climate change, of course, but also those induced by other causes such as industrial accidents. A second part of the class addresses the policy responses that have been implemented so far, as well as those that are envisioned for the future. Required reading : Foresight. 2011.

Pedagogical format : Seminar Course validation : - Final Research Essay, 60% ; - Research Report worth 30% ; - Class Participation worth 10%. More details about the organization of these means of assessment and the topics of the essays will be given during the course. Pedagogical method : The teaching method will be interactive and will rely on class participation. It will not be simply a series of lectures. The course convenor will provide all the necessary elements for the understanding of the subjects treated and will direct the debates, but will also organise a signiﬁcant number of case studies where the active participation of the students is required. Course Description : The course aims to equip participants with all the elements necessary to understand how international law regulates ethnopolitical conﬂicts. Beyond its theoretical framework this course will adopt a “practical” approach by examining a large number of case studies. This will permit participants to learn more about the roots and the outcomes of some important ethnopolitical conﬂicts around the world and to ﬁnd out how international organisations deal with those crises, and the effectiveness of the different strategies used for diffusing violent situations and resolving ethno-political conﬂicts. At the conclusion of this course students will have a sound knowledge of all the legal principles and rules applicable in this ﬁeld and will have a better understanding of how international lawyers and other actors ought to approach an impending or ongoing ethnic conﬂict from a legal point of view.
