Nirma University organizes Certificate Course Public International Law



The end of the Cold War around 1989 changed the course of international law which created a new international legal order.  International law is a dynamic subject, which has seen dramatic changes in the 20th Century.  The movement of decolonization resulting in the emergence of newer independent states and the emergence of the UN is the cause behind the change.  This apart, instances of non-compliance with international Rule of Law by powerful States have indeed questioned the validity or relevance of this branch of law.  To add up to the woes, International Law is also caught in the turf over the north-south divide, where the voices of the so called third world States’ voices are seldom heard.  Given this introduction, the course has been formulated having the following objectives in mind:
