Programme Overview

The Certificate in International Law and Diplomacy is a programme permitting students to specialize in the interface between international law and diplomacy. It will not only broaden students’ knowledge in the field of international law and its various foundational dimensions but will also equip them with knowledge and skills to work in the field of diplomacy and related international careers. During this programme, students will analyse the different dimensions of international law including those related to law-making, armed conflicts, human rights, economic relations, as well as those related to the theory and practice of diplomacy in the 21st century including dispute settlement and conflict resolution. Students will also attend skills development sessions that are designed to support their professional career and employability.
