What is our focus?
The main aim of the research group is to investigate the emerging practical developments in the field of multilevel regulation that have been transforming ways in which standards, rules, and laws are being made, complied with, and practiced.
Specifically, the research group aims at getting ahead of emerging trends in the research and practice of informal dispute resolution (negotiation, mediation, arbitration) in the Netherlands, Europe, and the world.
Politicians, governments, courts, service providers, and local communities all use informal techniques to improve relationships and increase compliance. We research how those informal techniques affect the contemporary legal systems, professional practice, education, and the modern society.
We aim at creating a network of academics, practitioners, representatives of local and central governments, and students to work together towards improving contemporary multilevel regulation and informal dispute resolution through innovation and experimentation.
Partners and network
The research group works towards increasing the local presence in The Netherlands and entering into international collaborations and partnerships in the field of multilevel regulation and dispute resolution.
