Richard Falk: International Law and The Nature of Security

Pin It

In this Symposium on International Law and the Quest for Security, Professor Richard Falk discusses the origins of the modern state and the issue of sustaining internal order and security amid an international environment in which terrorists groups that are not territorial can inflict severe damage within sovereign states. Professor Falk also talks about issues of war and peace and the relationship between the world’s primary superpower and the United Nations in relation to the current Iraq/US conflict.

    Is E V E R Y O N E respecting Treaties, and agreements.

    Are you prepared to stand by all that you say, and are you in conflict with other nations and peoples? KNOW what you do because if you are an outlaw in your own nation likely you certainly would be one elsewhere by your tendency NOT to know your Citizenship and where your country stands in the world Internationally.

    ALL have to obey the law even YOU

    A good step would be to graduate from a University in your country with a law degree and later on specialize in PIL (public international law, often referred as international law) when you are doing your master’s degree. Following that pattern you would have the secure option of practicing on national level if international law appears to be too hard to operate with. But if you are certain in your capabilities it is advisable to start with international law as Bachelor degree.
