Public Law Governance conferentie

Department of Public Law and Governance (PLG)

The Department of Public Law & Governance is a unique collaboration of researchers in the field of Public Law and Public Administration, in which various disciplines work together: International Law, European law, Constitutional Law, Administrative Law, Environmental Law, Public Administration, Legal Philosophy, Political Science, Legal History and Jurisprudence.

Team up with our research activities

The collaboration within PLG is very much inspired by a joint research interest. Whereas many scholars in the field of Public Law and Public Administration primarily focus on their internal dynamics, the Tilburg scholars are driven by a primary focus on both their context and foundations. Our researchers work together by the joint inspiration to rethink publicness in a globalized, multi-layered, and hypercomplex world, from the local to the global.
