Presentation of the research area
The research group aspires to create an academic environment which focuses both on international law in its many facets, and the internationalization of national law, i.e. the increasing interaction between international and national law.
The group members are affiliated with a variety of institutions at the Faculty of Law. They participate in the activities of the group with a diversity of approaches and perspectives. Each member benefit from suggestions, constructive criticism, debate, and inspiration in the regular group meetings.
The research group sponsors occasional seminars, workshops, and conferences to present research, stimulate scholarly debate, and strengthen its international networks. Furthermore, the group acts as a collaborative body for seeking funding for research and other academic projects.
International Law was formed in August 2005 in recognition of the importance of the topic and the need for a more formal platform upon which Oslo-based researchers in this field could interact with each other.
Wednesdays during the semester, the group hosts a lunch seminar series for members and selected guests ("folkerettslunsjer").
