Abstract

Currently various international treaties require contracting States to disseminate the text of international conventions and to promote public education concerning relevant issues of international law. In this regard, the teaching of international law has an important contribution to make in effectuating the treaty obligation. At the same time, the teaching of international law may contribute to promote public awareness for monitoring the compliance with treaties by government. Thus this study will explore the role of international legal education in effectuating the obligation to disseminate the text of relevant treaties and to promote public education concerning international law.
