European University Institute - Doctoral and Post-doctoral Research in the Social Sciences
The European University Institute was created in 1972 by the Member States of the founding European Communities. Its main objective is to provide advanced academic training to Ph.D students and to promote research at the highest level.
It carries out research in a European perspective (fundamental research, comparative research and Community research) in history, law, economics, political and social science. Its full-time teaching staff, fellows and research students are recruited from all countries of the European Union and from further afield. It welcomes research students for periods of one to four years who wish to study for the Institute's doctorate (normally four years) or take the LL.M. (one year Masters programme) in comparative, European and international law, as well as post-doctoral fellows.
