COI Conference – Who are we?

This Conference is an initiative of the law faculties of three Universities from the Netherlands: the Universities in Utrecht, Leiden and Nijmegen. Together we study how to improve conflict resolution via formal legal institutions. Institutions for Conflict Resolution (COI) is one of the two legal science themes of the Dutch national sector plan for law, the other being Empirical Legal Studies. We aim to offer an academic learning platform for all researchers interested in institutions for conflict resolution and to create opportunities to connect, learn, and advance in the field of conflict resolution. We encourage early career academics to join this network. Or visit the website of the Institutions for Conflict Resolution Network.
