Developing a Course on the Law of Peace Operations: Method and Practice--Making Ends Meet
Oswald, Bruce M.
Journal of Peace Education, v4 n1 p57-74 Mar 2007
This paper reflects on my personal experience conceptualising and teaching the law of peace operations course at The Melbourne Law School. More specifically, the paper examines some of the key challenges I have faced in developing the most appropriate conceptual framework and teaching methodologies to assist graduate students to better understand how the normative frameworks can better support diplomatic, political and military efforts to achieve and maintain international peace and security. Recognising that the law of peace operations is a relatively unrecognised area of peace education, I hope some of the issues raised in this paper will assist academics and instructors to develop more effective courses for teaching the myriad of legal issues that impact on ensuring peace operations assist to achieve sustainable peace and security.
