The European University Institute (EUI) has opened a special call for applications from candidates of any nationality who are directly affected by the war in Ukraine. We consider applications from candidates who live in Ukraine, have been displaced or cannot return to Ukraine because of the war, or who are directly affected for other reasons that can be specified in the application.
Ph.D. Programme in Law
The Department of Law enables you to study the challenges facing European law, public international law, and private law, with Ph.D. opportunities across social, cultural, political and economic topics.
Our researchers create strong links during their time here, thanks to our outstanding levels of interaction between faculty and researchers. Close supervision, seminars that are open to all, and active working groups ensure a dynamic exchange of ideas and knowledge, which shapes your research and helps develop your intellectual independence.
The interdisciplinary nature of our Department means that each year, world-famous scholars and leaders in their field visit to carry out research and to present and discuss their work. Our researchers further develop their skills and understanding through access to these experts.
The policy of the EUI is not to offer individual guidance and advice on dissertation proposals. Do not contact potential supervisors but read the information on research themes and indicate one or more professors who could supervise your dissertation in the application form.
If you have any questions on the programme, grants, requirements, application and selection procedures, please contact the EUI Admissions Office – Email: [email protected]
