This unique training opportunity aspires to enhance participants’ knowledge and skills in the areas of international law in the global arena. This will empower them to perform legal tasks more effectively and efficiently in the rapidly-changing world. It will also give you direct access to the UN, offering opportunities for networking and insights into UN career paths. The Master in Public International Law – Sigmund Freud University Vienna – UNITAR includes modules on Core Fields of Public International Law, and Theory and Practice of Global Diplomacy.
