Institutional context and (inter-)national cooperation
Beyond State-Centric Law and Legal Doctrine. New Actors and Determinants.
The research program is carried out within the Center for Transboundary Legal Development of the Tilburg Institute for Legal Research (TIRO) (formerly known as the Schoordijk Institute). The research conducted within the program is closely linked to research done within:
- the KNAW (Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences) recognised Research School for Legislative Studies of the Law School;
- several other research centres of the Law School, especially the Centre for Legislative Studies;
- the Faculties of Economics & Business Administration and Philosophy of Tilburg University;
- the Tilburg Law and Economics Centre (TILEC);
- the T.M.C. Asser Institute, Inter-university Institute for International Private and Public Law, International Commercial Arbitration and European Law, The Hague;
- the KNAW recognised School of Human Rights Research (a collaborative project of the Erasmus University, the University of Maastricht, the University of Utrecht, Tilburg University and the T.M.C. Asser Institute);
- the KNAW recognised Netherlands' School for Research in Practical Philosophy (a collaborative project of researchers from ten Dutch universities).
Some of the research projects funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) are carried out with researchers from the Universities of Aberdeen, Amsterdam (Free University), Caledonia, Leyden, Maastricht, Maryland and St. Andrews. Furthermore, the research conducted within the CTLD profits from a range of individual as well as institutionalised national and international research contacts.
On the national level, special ties exist with individual researchers from the universities of Amsterdam (Free University), Groningen (especially the KNAW recognised Centre for Law, Administration and Society), Leiden, Nijmegen (the Centre for Migration Law) and Utrecht. On the international level, such ties exist with researchers from, inter alia, the law schools of the universities of Cambridge, Catania, Chicago, Connecticut, Edinburgh, Essex, Firenze, Georgetown, Harvard, Leeds, Leuven, Louvain-la-Neuve, and Minnesota, and the London School of Economics.
