PluriCourts Fellowships for 2 months

The world needs to better understand the workings and impact of international courts and tribunals ('ICs') such as the Regional Human Rights Courts, the Court of Justice of the EU, the International Court of Justice, and the WTO Appellate Body.

Do you want to write a PhD in political science or philosophy on topics concerning such ICs? PluriCourts grants 2 month fellowships for June and July 2022 so that interested students who will have completed their Masters' degree by the end of the Spring 2022 term can devote this time to write even better applications for PhD fellowships.  The PhD applications may be used to apply to PhD programs anywhere, not only the University of Oslo.

PluriCourts is a Centre of Excellence based at the Faculty of Law at the University of Oslo. The Centre is funded by the Norwegian Research Council and studies the legitimacy of international courts and tribunals (ICs) from legal, political science and philosophical perspectives. Please confer PluriCourts research plan 2018-2023 for more information about our research.
