Application Deadline: September 1, 2021

The International PhD Programme in Law, Ethics & Economics for Sustainability (LEES) is a joint program of Milan, Rijeka and Maastricht  Universities (talks are ongoing to extend partnerships to other universities as well) and a large network of international cooperation worldwide (see the list and the international scientific committee). The LEES aims at the creation of a global interdisciplinary research community that shares a commitment to the goals of sustainability.

Such a community will be devoted to promoting an interdisciplinary, integrated research approach to global concerns, able to foster a process of change in which the exploitation of resources, the direction of investments, the orientation of technological innovation, the model of economic development and organization, and the resulting institutional change, are all made consistent with the future, as well as the present needs of humankind, granting self-determination, equal treatment and social justice to each of its members, in harmony with the preservation of the ecosystem.


6 Doctoral Research Positions in Law, Ethics and Economics for Sustainable Development (LEES)

The LEES program is seeking six outstanding and committed students to carry out a three-year multidisciplinary research project, based at more than one participating university (see the call for application and the course website).

We are launching LEES, a doctoral programme in International and Public Law, Ethics and Economics for Sustainable Development. With courses, seminars, and scientific research activities entirely in English, it addresses the complexities involved in sustainable development and uses an innovative multidisciplinary approach that combines the contributions of law, ethics, and economics.
