Law and Development Lecture Series 2019

The Law and Development Lecture Series is organised in the context of the postgraduate programme in Sustainable Development and Global Justice (SUSTLAW) organised by the Law and Development Research group in cooperation with the Flemish Interuniversity Research Network on Law and Development. Each year we invite experts passionate about their research to take part in a series of public lectures. We are delighted to welcome you to the lectures in the Law and Development Lecture Series 2019. Please join us and be part of the conversation, share your insights and find common ground with students and faculty members. Participation for these lectures is free.
