Centre for the Politics of Transnational Law

Banner

The Centre for the Politics of Transnational Law (CePTL) is an academic research institute for multidisciplinary research on the dynamic relationship between law and politics in a globalizing world. 

Contemporary issues such as targeted killings, the rise of investment law, the law of cyberspace, the development and implementation of drones, the emergence of new accountability structures in environmental law, the usage of private military companies to ensure the security of merchant ships against piracy, the Arctic scramble, humanitarian interventions, and more generally processes of legalisation or even constitutionalisation of the international realm call for critical examinations of the interplay between law and politics in global governance structures. 

CePTL brings together researchers and students interested in the 'Politics of Transnational Law'. Based at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, CEPT fosters an international network of scholars and students for critical reflections on the relationship between law and politics in a globalizing world. 

Wouter Werner and Tanja Aalberts coordinate the CePTL.
