Module 5

Issues in Regional Governance

Module MATERIALS

W12, W13, W14

In these first weeks back from the break, we discuss various challenges related to international law and organization within a regional context such as intra-regional cooperation and conflict and the coexistence of regional arrangements with multilateral institutions.

 

There are no formal lectures this term and instead, our meetings will be more of a seminar style. They are primarily based on your presentations and discussions. Your issue presentations begin the week of Jan 18th (W 13). As discussed and as outlined HERE, your presentations will be pre-recorded. Post a link to your presentation on the OWL FORUMS HERE so that all of your classmates can view it before class. Class time will be devoted to your discussions and other things like comments from me and the occasional guest speaker.
