Abstract

This chapter will begin with a brief description and personal analysis of the history of international law teaching at the University of Glasgow. It will then turn to consider the growing maturity and complexity of international law, before introducing the fragmentations debate. Drawing on my own teaching and research in the field of international immunities from jurisdiction, the chapter will then consider one of the most controversial examples of the fragmentation debate, that is, the conflict between State immunity and human rights, particularly as exemplified in the recent decision of the International Court of Justice in Jurisdictional Immunities of States (Germany v Italy). Having highlighted the problems inherent in the process of fragmentation, the final section of the chapter will be argue that teachers of international law have a central role to play in avoiding further fragmentation of international law.
