The theme of the minor is the role of law in defining and resolving social issues concerning the globalisation of societies. Central topics are migration (transnational movement), internet (transnational communications) and climate change (transnational action).
This minor offers students insight in questions, such as:
- Why transnational issues are not suited for unilateral, national actions
- What states can do within international law (such as European Union law)
- The ways in which states are currently responding to these issues
- The criticism of the current actions and regulations
- Future perspectives
