Research Themes

EDOLAD is dedicated to the study of Law and Development. In particular, we are interested in empirical research into how law functions and is used in the development context. The programme is not limited by topic or by regime of the world. Instead, we are guided by:

  • the quality of the proposed project
  • the quality of the candidate; and
  • the innovativeness of the proposed research

 

Broad research themes of interest to participating scholars within the consortium are (in no particular order):

  • Gender
  • Sustainability
  • Institutions and actors
  • Technology, in particular ICT
  • Inclusion and exclusion
  • Vulnerability
  • Law in a Globalizing context
  • Trade and development
  • Difference and identity
