Public International Law

From the time of Samuel Pufendorf, international law has been a topic of research at the Faculty of Law.

Today, this topic area is represented by a vibrant community of scholars, and their research concerns the structure of the international legal system, the theory and history of international law, and the relationship of international law with other legal orders.

It pertains to areas of specialisation such as migration and refugee law, human rights law, environment and sustainability law, the law of new technologies and international economic law.

A large part is conducted in co-operation with colleagues at other faculties of Lund University or at faculties of law in other European countries. The research environment is enriched by regular seminars, workshops and conferences, and every so often acts as host of international guest researchers.
