Lesson Plan on International Law and Organizations

In this lesson plan, students will be introduced to the issues of state sovereignty and governance of international institutions. The first activity introduces the debate between internationalists and the rights of sovereign nations. Students will read an interview with Jeremy Rabkin, one of the most vocal proponents of state sovereignty, and a rebuttal in Foreign Affairs written by Peter Spiro. After becoming familiar with the two sides of the argument, students will role play one of the positions in a mock interview conducted by another member of the class.
