Law and Governance Group

The LAW group conducts research on law and regulation in the life sciences domains of Wageningen University (food, health and the environment). While our core research and teaching area is food law, we also work on general issues pertaining to EU law, international law, transnational law, intellectual property law and human rights law, and are keen to explore interdisciplinary connections in those areas.

The Europa Institute and its associated FUTURES Centre have
created two Jean Monnet Early Career Visiting Fellowships that will be hosted
at Edinburgh Law School in 2019-2020; full details are available here -


Our research

The group focuses on the law and regulation pertaining to private and public actors of the global economy, such as companies, consumers, states, international organizations, and civil society organizations, in the supra-, inter- and transnational arenas. While our work is grounded in classical legal analysis, we strongly engage into interdisciplinary and transnational research with social and natural science.
