The German Research Foundation funds the Berlin Potsdam Research Group on â€˜The International Rule of Law â€“ Rise or Decline?â€™ for another four years
The German Research Foundation continues to fund the Berlin Potsdam Research Group on â€˜The International Rule of Law â€“ Rise or Decline?â€™ for another four years. The Research Group, which took up its work in 2015 and is supported by Freie UniversitÃ¤t, Humboldt UniversitÃ¤t and UniversitÃ¤t Potsdam, examines the role of international law in a changing global order. It assumes that a systemically relevant crisis of international law of unusual proportions is currently taking place which requires a reassessment of the state and the role of the international legal order. In the second funding period, the group will focus on which type of international law we may see emerging. The Research Group examines, amongst others, the effects of identity politics on international legal values, inquires into the state and development of sources and other structural rules of international law, and analyses challenges for, and the resilience of, international institutions.
The Research Group brings together international lawyers - Heike Krieger (Freie UniversitÃ¤t Berlin), Georg Nolte (Humboldt UniversitÃ¤t zu Berlin), and Andreas Zimmermann (UniversitÃ¤t Potsdam) - as well as political scientists - Andrew Hurrell (University Oxford) and Andrea Liese (UniversitÃ¤t Potsdam) â€“ as well as the political philosopher Stefan Gosepath (Freie UniversitÃ¤t Berlin). The Research Group, which has so far been located at Humboldt UniversitÃ¤t zu Berlin, will continue its work at Freie UniversitÃ¤t Berlin from 1 October 2019 onwards.
An important pillar of the Research Group consists in a fellow program for international researchers who visit the Group for periods of up to two years. Individual research projects benefit from dense interdisciplinary exchanges among senior scholars, practitioners, postdoctoral fellows and doctoral students from diverse academic backgrounds. Public events contribute to a transfer of the research results to a broader public audience.
