This lecture will serve as a general introduction to fields of Public International Law ("Völkerrecht") and, building on that, International Economic Law. On a substantive level, the aim is to put you in a position where you can follow and critically assess issues of global significance about which you read in the media (e.g. Trade wars, the multilateral world order, international organizations etc.). While the focus will be on the law and policy of the WTO, some consideration will also be given to the Bretton Woods institutions (IMF, World Bank). On a practical level, the lecture and the corresponding examination (presentation+essay based on that) shall enable you to develop and substantiate critical arguments of your own after careful inquiry into a particular subject area (there will be a list of topics and you will also be able to come up with your own). As the lecture will be held in English, you may also use it as a "testing ground" for further developing you language skills. There will be a tutorial to assist you with questions surrounding your presentation and your paper.
