This course is the final course in the Master of Laws Programme in International Law. During the course, students will carry out an independent project, qualifying them to conduct further research in the field. Students will plan and write an essay in a clearly defined subject area within international law. Compared to the courses offered during the first semester of the master's programme in international law, this last course aims to further develop and deepen both method and subject-matter.

The research project will consist of a single coherent thesis and shall not be divided into different memoranda. The thesis is an individual research project and as such shall be written independently.
