Summary

International Law and Strategic Studies at Aberdeen explores how the legal disciplines impact the prevention, control and conduct of conflicts in the modern word. With the combined strength of two schools, this programme explores the use of force by international and transnational actors to achieve political and security objectives. It allows a focused appreciation of the legal considerations that frame many contemporary conflicts. Students will have the opportunity to develop critical thinking and analytic skills through studying courses such as The Evolution of International Law in a World of Crises, The Law of International Organizations and International Humanitarian Law.

This programme was designed with the assistance of external contacts within the fields of International Law and Strategic Studies. With the combined input from several expert lawyers, you will gain unique insights into both subjects and will advance your understanding of their relationship. Alongside the expert knowledge of our internal staff at the University, the programme aligns with the competencies required for today’s international job market.

The University of Aberdeen has a reputation for attracting world-class teaching staff with unrivalled experience and knowledge in their specialist subjects. You will have access to first rate teaching from globally respected staff, such as Programme Director Dr Irène Couzigou, who before lecturing at Aberdeen, worked at the Universities of Heidelberg and Mannheim in Germany, respectively and as an assistant to a professor at the University of Paris II in France.
