Then join us in this programme!

The ‘Globalisation and International Health Law’ programme is a collaboration between the Erasmus University Rotterdam, Erasmus Law School, Erasmus School of Health Policy & Management, Institute of Health Law, and the Erasmus Observatory on Health Law in Rotterdam. It brings together expertise in doctrinal analysis of international health law with expertise in legal theory. International health law gives rise to many unsettled doctrinal questions and theoretical inquiries about post-national constitutionalism, solidarity, justice, human rights, and the legalization of state conduct or the possibility of state-independent transnational law. We invite PhD-proposals focusing on doctrinal analysis of international health law or combining doctrinal analysis with novel theoretical inquiries.
