1. Using current real-world examples, critically discuss whether and how the international legal order is becoming less state-centric.
♣ Compare/contrast two or more real-world examples to illustrate your point.
♣ If your argument is ‘yes’, ‘no’, ‘it’s complicated’ – that’s fine, but you must clearly explain why.
Please talk about states, non-states and how is international law becoming less state-centric and why? Is it because there are non states? are there organizations that have enough power, such as international institutions such as the UN? Please let me know if the topic is not clear BEFORE you start the paper.
Public international law: State and Non-state.
Please use the following instructions:
♣ Clarity of argument
♣ Originality of argument. Please don’t just regurgitate somebody else’s argument and simply say you agree with it. I’d like to know why you agree with it.
♣ Is your argument(s) substantiated? Have you considered a variety of legal instruments? Have you considered a variety of well-established commentary on the legal arguments? Have you compared/contrasted with other similar cases?
♣ State the facts first, but be judicious in which facts you state. Don’t waste your limited word count on describing the details of a case.
♣ Move on to discuss the political and legal justifications/ramifications for each argument/case study/case, etc.
♣ No Wikipedia!
♣ No first person.
♣ No conspiracy theories!
♣ Keep in mind the course learning outcomes and objectives stated in the syllabus.
