Pedagogical Method : The course will be divided in 6 sessions (4 hours per session : 2 hours dedicated to a lecture, 1 hour to oral presentations by the Student, 1 hour to a general debate). The course will be given during 6 weeks, from mid-March to the end of April. Course Description : The aim of the course is to study the prohibition of the use of force in contemporary international law. Some commentators claim that the ﬁeld has undergone substantial changes arising especially with the development of the 'war against terror'. Since 9/11, and this would have been conﬁrmed after the Paris events of November 2015, self-defence against non-State actors, pre-emptive self-defence, or humanitarian intervention would have been recognized by the international community. But some other authors disagree with this interpretation of international law, pointing the ambiguity of recent precedents like Ukraine, Yemen or Syria. During this course, we will assess this legal debate by examining relevant texts, case-law and precedents. The course is composed of lectures and discussions about current precedents, especially surrounding the war against ISIS. Required reading : Olivier Corten, The Law against War. The Prohibition on the Use of Force in Contemporary International Law, Oxford, Hart Publ., 2010.
based on their reading of the materials prescribed for each seminar. Course Description : Theory is constitutive of the law as well as the world to which it is applied. In that sense, theory is everywhere when one comes to think of the problems of the world, international law, and global governance. And yet, theory has never been the object of as many disagreements as today. Indeed, there is an unprecedented variety of ways in which international law and global governance are theorized today. Long articulated along the reductive divide between naturalism and legal positivism, theoretical debates about international law and global governance have witnessed the rise of a wide range of new but distinct critical projects, each of them coming with different conceptual, methodological, investigational, and functional choices. This course is premised on the idea that, whatever their respective areas of expertise, 21st century lawyers cannot be indifferent to the politics of conceptualisation that is inherent in these variety of understandings of international law and global governance. This course will allow student to develop critical skills to unravel the “politics” of legal arguments about international law and the problems the latter is meant to resolve. It will train students to decipher the methodological choices, genealogies, and agendas informing the most dominant approaches to international law and global governance. Required reading : For each seminar, students will be expected to read approx. 2-3 pieces of scholarship.
