About the courseWe consider one of the core issues presented by the international system as it has evolved is the establishment and maintenance of order and the reconciliation of this goal with that of the achievement of justice for the competing claims of groups, both territorial and non-territorial, and individuals. This fascinating course aims to explore the emerging global order of the 21st century from the perspectives of diplomacy and international law. Rapid change at both the domestic and international levels – globalization – is transforming the policy environment and context in which both are constrained to operate. You will have the opportunity to study the changing environment and new challenges it presents, such as gender equality, climate change, modern slavery, terrorism and organised crime.The course focuses on two sets of inter-related issues which are central to an understanding of this changing environment. Firstly, you will be encouraged to look at the role and nature of diplomacy as a key mode of communication between states and other actors on the international stage. Secondly, you will be asked to examine the development and adaptation of the norms and rules of international law, which have traditionally constituted the main sources of order in the international system.Attracting students from a number of different countries to this course, in the past including Nigeria, Indonesia, Croatia, Oman, Austria, Ghana, Pakistan and the UK, we offer a multicultural learning experience of diverse cultures and values, which will better prepare you to work in an increasingly globalised job market.The School of Humanities and Coventry Law School currently has an outstanding network of professional contacts, which spans diplomats and diplomacy specialists in a range of prestigious external organisations, both private and public, our network has included Chatham House, the Centre for the Study of Slavery, the Royal African Society and the Institute of Cultural Diplomacy.

AboutCoventry University is a public research university in Coventry, England. The origins of Coventry University can be traced back to the founding of the Coventry School of Design in 1843. It was known as Lanchester Polytechnic from 1970 until 1987, and then as Coventry Polytechnic until the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 afforded its university status that year and the name was changed to Coventry University.
The main campus of Coventry University is based in the centre of England, in the city of Coventry with Coventry University London just an hour away by train. As a top five UK student city (QS Best Student Cities Index 2019) Coventry offers students the benefits of both a great city experience and a campus with a thriving community.

On campus, TheHub is the centre of student life: it is the place to gather, grab a coffee with friends, have a meal, see a band in the SU, or just hang out. In short – it is TheHub of campus life. But there is also the University’s Sports Centre just across from TheHub, and the Westwood Heath Sports facilities with floodlit AstroTurf and grass pitches for football, hockey, rugby and cricket.
