PG Dip/PG Cert, MA International Law and International Relations
In global affairs, governments, inter-governmental institutions, non-governmental organisations and multinational corporations are engaged in a constant making and remaking of political and legal rules and procedures. For both practitioners and students of global governance, it is necessary to be able to analyse and interpret legal and political developments in a transnational context.
As societies have become increasingly connected and interdependent, the range of policy issues that fall within the remit of global politics has increased dramatically. For quite some time now, international relations has gone beyond the level of traditional inter-state diplomacy. International relations increasingly include rules and standards of economic interaction, global communications, international human rights, and the management of the global commons (e.g. the environment).
There is a demand in academia, national and international policy-making communities, the NGO community, and the transnational business sector, for graduates with in-depth knowledge and understanding of how international politics is practised through law and how international law functions against the backdrop of political contexts. Drawing on the research expertise of interdisciplinary scholars, this course aims to provide you with such knowledge and understanding.
Oxford attracts high calibre researchers and academics from all over the world as well as those closer to home, and you will benefit by being part of a thriving and supportive community of research scholars in both International Relations and Law. You will have the opportunity to regularly attend seminars and lectures given by visiting speakers who are recognised world experts in the field of international studies.
The university has four libraries housing a wide selection of books and journals and the Library Electronic Information Network (LEIN), giving you access to bibliographical searching tools, databases and electronic journals. Our postgraduate students have access to the University of Oxford's world-renowned Bodleian Library.
