Research & training
We aim at supervising research carried out in the areas of law in which our institutes and inter-university research schools are specialized:
- Global justice
- Institutional transformations
- Globalising markets
- Cross-border cooperation and mobility
- Law and Technology
The main focus is the role of law in an ever-globalising society and the institutional and substantive legal developments in Europeanisation and globalisation. Research is rooted in the research groups and institutes and in the domains of the inter-university Ius Commune Research School (the common law of Europe).
The Maastricht Graduate School of Law offers sound and tailor-made training to PhD researchers and Master’s Honours students. Both training programmes focus on research methodology, research integrity, skills training and career development.
In addition, PhD researchers may teach Bachelor’s and Master’s courses at Maastricht University in their field of expertise.
