Module Sustainable Development and Global Justice

The relationship between law and development continues to be a key issue of debate both in academia and policy circles. What are the potential and limits of law in achieving sustainable development in a globalized world? The Sustainable Development and Human Rights module tackles this question by providing key conceptual and analytical tools to gain in depth knowledge of and critically assess the interplay between law and development.

The module offers high quality teaching and learning in a dynamic environment, paying attention to North-South as well as South-South interactions.

Faculty includes members of the Law and Development Research Group and senior guest lecturers from institutional partners in the South.

The module consists of four taught clusters:

  • International Law and Sustainable Development
  • Human Rights and Global Justice
  • External Actors in Aid, Trade and Investment
  • Law in Developing Countries

and of two interactive project weeks.
