International Organizations and International Law

Mission Statement


Thematically, the section focusses on the interface between "International Organizations and International Law" and aims to highlight selected studies on international organizations, regionalism, world order, and issues of global governance and justice. It seeks to stimulate academic reflections on the research agenda and methods in the respective fields and to solicit contributions from members of the broader society, especially practitioners and experts.

The section "International Organizations and International Law" brings together PhD candidates and postdocs from the social sciences and law, and aims to promote new partnerships, academic exchange, and science communication with the general public through workshops, guest lectures, and panel discussions. The section organizes colloquia where its members present their ongoing research. The section is open to social, legal and political science perspectives; economic research approaches also enrich our discussions. Possible exemplary perspectives for the section's research approaches include international institutions, socio-legal approaches, comparative political science, and civil society research.

Individual researchers working in related areas at academic and non-academic research institutions can apply for membership. For this, contact the Section management team.

The Section ‘International Organizations and International Law’ endeavours to cooperate closely with the Section ‘Norms and Change in World Politics’.
