International Law in Action explains the functions of each international court and tribunal present in The Hague, and it looks at how these institutions address contemporary problems. On the basis of selected cases, and through interviews with judges and lawyers, you will explore the role of these courts and tribunals and their potential to contribute to global justice. The first module of the course will investigate how judicial settlement is different from other more political forms of dispute settlement, such as negotiation and mediation. It offers a brief historical overview and introduces the judicial and arbitral bodies based in The Hague. In the remaining modules you will learn about the functions of these courts and tribunals, and some of the challenges and prospects that they face. Three cross-cutting themes tie together all of these modules: (i) The interaction between law and politics; (ii) The continuing role of State consent; and (iii) The ability of international courts and tribunals to protect the public interest and global values. This course offers you an opportunity to gain a better insight into the functions and features of the courts and tribunals present in The Hague. You will gain a familiarity with each court or tribunal. You will develop realistic expectations of their capacity to address contemporary problems and an awareness of their limitations. You will also be able to discuss some of their most prominent cases. If you would like to have a better understanding of international law in action in The Hague, this is definitely the course for you! This course is free to join and to participate in. There is the possibility to get a verified certificate for the course, which is a paid option. If you want a certificate, but are unable to pay for it, you can request financial aid via Coursera...



It was good overview course about three main international courts in The Hague. The lectures were good structured and clear. Interviews were impressed and made international court practices "real".


Very informative and quite challenging\n\nThis course has provided me with material and resources to be able to think about larger ideas and the extent to which International Law is important.

This course was a fantastic introduction to International Law for me. I found some of the readings challenging, but the videos helped create a great framework to work from. I am hoping to take the other MOOCs in this wheelhouse!

Excellent introduction to the International courts system. More details on Investor-State Arbitration or perhaps a course exclusively on the topic would be great!

The course was very informative, with repeating themes that embedded the information into my memory. Would recommend if you have an interest for the topic.

Very interesting course

創建者 Aleks L


The scope of the course is really limited, and that is fine for super-introductory courses like this one, but all the emotional attachments aside, looking only into one city's tribunals is questionable from the methodological point of view.

創建者 Miriam S


Interesting course, but rather superficial introduction: Fast paced with little ressources. Good for a quick overview into the Int'l Courts in The Hague

Too much emphasis on irrelevant fact-repeating (eg date a convention was signed) rather than content and implications of the content for practice.
