Peoples and Minorities in International Law Seminar
J.D. Seminar 636 (cross-listed) | 3 credit hours
Statehood has long been the central organizing idea in the
international legal system. Although this system accommodates the
individual, it does not readily include groups of individuals. This course addresses how international law has recognized and currently recognizes peoples and minorities, including colonial peoples, indigenous peoples, ethnic, religious and linguistic minorities, and newer minorities formed through migration.
Strongly recommended: International Law I or Public International Law.
