Special attention will be given to the development of international norms, practices and institutions designed by the United Nations. The course will also present some local interpretations of international norms from a comparative perspective focusing upon the case of the Northern-Ireland peace agreement, the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina, the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the current violent outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
