Award Details
Grant Activity

Conduct relevant research at PluriCourts - Center for the Study of the Legitimate Roles of the Judiciary in the Global Order.

The PluriCourts Center studies the legitimate roles of the judiciary in the global order. The focus is on international courts and tribunals in criminal law, the environment, human rights, investment and trade by scholars in law, political science and philosophy.

Research at PluriCourts concerns the origins of International Courts, how they function and their effects. PluriCourts draws on these findings to assess them by principles of legitimacy and develops plausible, sustainable models for each court and their interaction.

In addition to research, selected scholars may also be invited to provide guest lectures and/or participate in seminars.

In addition to being a prestigious academic exchange program, the Fulbright Program is designed to expand and strengthen relationships between the people of the United States and citizens of other nations and to promote international understanding and cooperation. To support this mission, Fulbright Scholars will be asked to give public talks, mentor students, and otherwise engage with the host community, in addition to their primary activities‎.
