International law deals with relations between nations and states also known as law of nations. The study field can be split into 3 three disciplines: public international law, private international law and supranational law. International law has a broad spectrum of issues. It deals with the legal interactions between nations, companies, governments, assuring their proper rights. National law becomes international law when national jurisdiction is delegated to supranational tribunals by treaties. The main substantive fields of international law are: international economic law, international security law, international criminal law, international environmental law, diplomatic law, international humanitarian law, international human rights law and international law of war.

This course will examine the definition of human trafficking and study a number of legal instruments (Conventions and laws) to come to a full understanding of how human trafficking is defined. A discussion turns to what we actually know about human trafficking -how we measure the problem, why it is so difficult to determine just how many persons are being trafficked and whether a person is a trafficked victim. The course explores the different perspectives from which we can examine trafficking - as a criminal justice and organized crime problem, but also from the perspective of supply and demand, human rights, immigration, poverty and gender inequality. The course takes place from January 14th - 22st, 2013.
