Cooperation with Ius Commune Research School

We cooperate with the Ius Commune Research School, a cooperation between the Law Faculties of the universities of Maastricht (UM), Utrecht (UU), Amsterdam (UvA) and Leuven (K.U. Leuven) which aims at the realization of a Ius Commune in Europe. Management and secretariat of the Research School are located at Maastricht Univeristy. Ius Commune supports the research of participants in the School and organises the training programme for the PhD-researchers that have been admitted to the School.

Centre for European Research in Maastricht (CERiM)

Since December 2014, the Maastricht Centre for European Law is part of an interfaculty collaboration: the Centre for European Research in Maastricht (CERiM). The newly created Centre for European Research in Maastricht (CERiM) is an interdisciplinary research venue creating synergies and stimulating joint projects and events in the fields of European law, governance, and their respective history. It brings together researchers from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASoS) and the Faculty of Law (FL) of Maastricht University.

The scholars of the Centre participate in the Ius Commune Research School and the School of Human Rights Research, both of which are inter-university research consortia of which Maastricht University is a partner. The research of the Centre is disseminated through the usual channels for publications, and also by means of the Maastricht Working Papers in Law.

Benefitting from the fact that other scholars in the field of European integration are located in Maastricht, the Centre works in (close) collaboration with scholars based in the Political Science department of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASoS) and in the European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA).

Since December 2014 the Maastricht Centre for European Law is part of an interfaculty collaboration: the Centre for European Research in Maastricht (CERiM).
