KULeuvenThe Dean Rusk International Law Center at the University of Georgia School of Law and the Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies at the University of Leuven are proud to partner in presenting the Global Governance Summer School. Core events, including an expert conference, will take place on the beautiful campus of the University of Leuven (below), one of Europe's premier research institutions, during the summer.

At Leuven, Georgia Law students will join a target audience of: advanced students in international law, international relations, international political economy, and international and European studies; and practitioners and policy experts who wish to update their knowledge on developments in global governance and international law. 

Leuven, Belgium

Through lectures, discussions, and group projects, students will explore global governance - the interaction of state, regional, and international legal regimes, plus individuals, corporations, intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations, networks, and other non-state actors. A range of global challenges will be discussed, and topics may include trade and sustainable development, peace and security, trafficking and other crimes, intellectual property, the environment, human rights and the rule of law, and migration.

Students will participate in several days of classroom instruction, and a professional development trip in Brussels, including institution and law firm visits. Instructors include faculty from both UGA School of Law and the University of Leuven.

The Hague

The European journey continues for Georgia Law students with several days at The Hague in the Netherlands, site of many international legal institutions. Visits will include international courts and tribunals headquartered in The Hague, such as the International Criminal Court, the International Court of Justice (left), and the Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal.
