Methods of Work

The research group studies international law in a multi-level context, including the regional and national level, and the interaction between the different levels. It invites inter-disciplinary approaches. The group aims at providing academics and students with the interest and the intellectual tools needed to participate as responsible members of a world community premised on the notion of human dignity for all People.

Conversations with Leading International Judges

In 2008, Professor Cecilia M. Bailliet launched a series of interviews with leading international judges in order to explore the evolution of international law. You can watch them here.
