i-HILT, Institute for the History of International Law @ Tilburg is a group of researchers from the Department of Public Law and Governance at Tilburg Law School, the Netherlands.
i-HILT is a virtual platform on the history of international law, with a focus on public international law, and international economic and commercial law. Here, ‘international law’ is used in the broadest sense. It refers to all forms of normativity that regulated relations between polities such as states, cities and corporations and among citizens and merchants throughout recorded history: from pre-classical Antiquity to the present and from all civilizations.
i-HILT will run the ‘Bibliography of the History of International Law’ and the ‘Bibliography of the History of International Economic and Commercial Law’. These bibliographies can be downloaded from the website. They are regularly updated. Furthermore, i-HILT will provide information on events and new publications.
i-HILT also stands for Institute of the History of International Law @ Tilburg research group within the Department of Public Law and Governance at Tilburg Law School.
I-HILT is responsible for teaching several legal history classes on the curriculum of Tilburg Law School. We also organize a series of lectures on the history of international law at the Tilburg Law School.
Members of i-HILT participate in the research program 'Global Law and Governance’ of the Department of Global Law and Governance at Tilburg Law School.
