Your research will be carried out within the Amsterdam Center for International Law (ACIL
). ACIL is the Center of Excellence for Public International Law of the University of Amsterdam whose research activities aim at a critical understanding of international law in society, its progressive development, and its effective rule.
Your research will further be situated in, and aligned with, the Sustainable Global Economic Law (SGEL
) research project, in which ACIL—together with two other research groups: Amsterdam Center for European Law and Governance (ACELG) and Amsterdam Center for Transformative Private Law (ACT)—is an active participant. At the core of SGEL research is a concern for the urgent intertwined challenges of climate change and high levels of inequality that are both shaped by how the global economy is structured. You will have the opportunity to participate in the Amsterdam Law School’s PhD training programme and be part of its PhD community.
