ERI conducts research on conflict-resolving institutions within a changing rule of law. In doing so, we conduct both 'classical' legal research as well as empirical research.

Among other things, we study compensation systems and law enforcement. Whilst doing this, we examine how institutions work in legal practice. This provides important insights into task performance, transparency, responsibility and accountability. We do all this in collaboration with others: other scientific disciplines and with other law faculties, at home and abroad.

Five themes central to our approach

  • "Towards just institutional approaches to conflict prevention and resolution"
