Tilburg Law School also offers two highly regarded doctoral research programmes that explicitly seek to place law in a global context:

  • Globalisation and Legal Theory¬†
    Globalisation and legal theory is a collaborative Ph.D. programme between the Universities of Antwerp, Glasgow and Tilburg, which critically engages with law and politics in their increasingly globalised environment. Key areas of interest include authority, constitutionalism, responsibility and justice in a globalising world.
