Tilburg Law School also offers two highly regarded doctoral research programs that explicitly seek to place law in a global context:
Globalisation and legal theory
Globalisation and Legal Theory is a collaborative Ph.D. program between the Universities of Antwerp, Glasgow and Tilburg, which critically engages with law and politics in their increasingly globalized environment. Key areas of interest include authority, constitutionalism, responsibility and justice in a globalizing world.
European Joint Doctorate in Law and Development (EDOLAD)
Focusing on the interdisciplinary study of Law and Development, EDOLAD is a joint doctoral program between the Universities of Tilburg, Tartu, Oslo, Edinburgh, Deusto and North-West Potchefstroom. It is a three-year program and includes a four-month core curriculum and compulsory fieldwork. The development of the program was funded by an EU Lifelong Learning Project grant.
