POL002E Power and Law in a Mutative World
After seven decades in which the post-World War II international liberal order has framed international relations, the world is in the midst of a mutation process with the foundations of the international system increasingly in doubt, competition rather than cooperation underpinning relations between great powers, the frictions rising from the growing relevance of interdependence, interconnectedness and flows in political organizations that is built on States; and unpredictability becoming the norm. This course aims at providing key tools to navigate the ever more difficult struggle to develop global governance with a focus on the actors driving changes, gaps in existing institutional structures and evolving responses. It views these changes through the lenses of law, economics, politics, and geopolitics, privileging primary sources and direct testimonies.
