Welcome to Law and Development

The Law and Development research group unites researchers who study the role of law in enhancing human dignity and global justice, between and within States in North and South.

The  group takes a critical approach to law, and seeks to investigate what law actually ‘does’ in society, amongst others through interdisciplinary and empirical research.

It was founded in 2006, as one of the research groups of the faculty of law at the University of Antwerp. The Group runs annually a teaching programme on Sustainable Development and Global Justice.
