Compliance with International Law: Theories and Mechanisms

It is trite to observe that international law lacks coercive enforcement mechanisms. The impact of this reality on compliance with international law is, however, far from straightforward. This course will critically examine the main theories of compliance that have been offered in the literature and closely study the mechanisms of compliance available in international law. The ultimate objective is to problematize and refine the very notion of compliance with international law.
