The Centre for Government and Law (CORe) was set up in 2008 under the auspices of the Faculty of Law. CORe focuses mainly on the relationship between citizens and authorities, which can be found in constitutional law, administrative law, environmental law and tax law.
Other research is conducted on the relationships between citizens: family law, contract law, economic and social law are only a few examples.
In all research, special attention is given to alternate forms of dispute settlements, such as negotiation and mediation.
Research takes place at six different research units each related to the majors that the Faculty of Law offers to its master’s students: ‘Government and Law’, ‘Law – Private’ and ‘Law – Corporate’.
CORe opts for high quality research in a limited number of selected domains and strongly believes in the added value of multidisciplinarity.
