This course explores aspects of transactional practice of public international law by examining the legal problems associated with peacekeeping operations — truce maintenance, election supervision, and so called “peace enforcement” — at both the united nations and regional levels. Students will select (or be assigned) a peacekeeping operation and will be called upon to analyze and comment on the drafting of the operation’s mandate from the issuing institution, and the instruments regulating its relations with the host country(ies), and those governing its own multinational force. These analyses will serve as the bases for a final report on the legal problems associated with the particular operation. The report and prior analyses are intended to satisfy one half of the school’s writing requirement. Refer to Academic Rule X — Writing Requirement and Directed Research. Enrolled students must attend the first class meeting.
