Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies

Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies

The Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies continues Leiden University’s long and outstanding tradition in the study and teaching of public international law.

At the Grotius Centre scholars study and explore the frontiers of public international law in light of the increasing transformation of the international legal order. They explore, for example, the promotion of international criminal justice, the promotion of sustainable international trade and the role of international organisation in the rule of law. They also teach the basic principles of public international law to an increasing number of students from all over the world.
