In this one-year interdisciplinary Master’s program, you’ll learn how to ask the right questions to increase your understanding of the complexities involved in these dilemmas. These questions are legal, political, and ethical at the same time. International law is not treated as an abstract set of rules but as a professional practice. You’ll therefore study what it is to be a lawyer in a variety of professional contexts, including litigation, legal advisory, and diplomatic negotiations. -

International conflicts and security issues have changed fundamentally over the past decades. Understanding them and managing them requires new skills. We offer this Master’s program, taught by international researchers who have trained and worked at the best universities in Europe, to develop these skills in our graduates. Contemporary conflicts and security issues are multiple, complex, and volatile. They may last for decades. Signs of progress are often deceptive, and outsiders involved in managing the conflict can experience war, development, and peace enforcement all in one day. To understand these conflicts and other contemporary security issues, and to help organizations prepare for them, we need experts who are interdisciplinary and trained to understand the complexities of these environments. This Master of Social Sciences in International Security and Law will train you to be this kind of expert. Grounded in the world-class research done by the Center for War Studies, the program will provide you with the skills to integrate a conflict’s political, juridical, and ethical dimensions in a comprehensive assessment that identifies the drivers of conflict and security issues, and what public and private organizations can do about them. -
