The Law Department of the European University Institute is dedicated to train Doctoral researchers, principally in three fields: European Law, Public International Law, and Transnational Law. The research carried out at the Institute by its Professors, Visiting Fellows and PhD students addresses the principal challenges facing us today. Current projects include: the constitutional impact of the Euro-crisis, the impact of the economic crisis on social rights and its impact on the nature of EU law-making, the legal issues surrounding terrorism and surveillance, as well as the laws of war, the impact of globalisation and the nature of global governance, state-building and constitution-making, the emergence and challenge of European Private Law. The working paper series serves to disseminate the research carried out at the Institute but we also welcome contributions from scholars working in the fields above.
