This informative program adds much needed depth to this broad definition by explaining: state sovereignty, domestic law and international law; the importance of the United Nations and international courts and tribunes; the role of organizations such as NATO, IMF and Red Cross; and the future of international law. With professional insight from Professor Tim McCormack, Special Advisor for the ICC, Professor Gillian Triggs, Public International Lawyer, and Geoffrey Robertson QC, renowned Human Rights Lawyer and author, this program is an essential introduction to international law."--Container.
