The Hague and International Law
Professor Bill Felice
The International Relations and Global Affairs (IRGA) discipline and the Office of International Education are pleased to present a "Spring-into-Summer" course in The Hague and Strasbourg.
This "spring-into-summer" course will explore the European approach to human rights, first in the classroom at Eckerd, and then for two weeks at The Hague and in Strasbourg. At these centers of international law, students will be briefed by experts from the Council of Europe, the European Court of Human Rights, the International Criminal Court, and the International Court of Justice. The course objectives are to deepen our students' knowledge of international law and human rights and to gain a new appreciation for the multilateralist human rights approach to foreign policy pursued in Europe. A fundamental objective is to explore the degree to which this European human rights framework has impacted domestic law and policy. Eckerd College Trustee Gabriel Mazza, who works for the Council of Europe, is helping to set up the meetings for students in Strasbourg. Texts will include Michael Goldhaber's, A People's History of the European Court of Human Rights (Rutgers Un. Press, 2007) and other material from the Council of Europe.
Eckerd students currently have the opportunity to study the United Nations in New York City and international organizations in Geneva, Switzerland. This new study abroad program in The Hague and Strasbourg focusing on international law creates a third opportunity for our students to directly engage with the world's leading international institutions. Few, if any, other undergraduate institutions offer students the opportunity to study international relations in NYC, Geneva, The Hague, and Strasbourg.
Note: Instructor's permission is required to join this class. This course fulfills the IRGA Practicum. If you are interested in learning more about the Hague/ Strasbourg course, please contact Professor Felice (firstname.lastname@example.org; 864-8994; FO-122).
