The goal of our PhD programme is to help students to unravel the manifold transformations in economy, politics, and institutions as well as in national and international law imposed by globalization and to equip them with the intellectual means to meet the normative and analytical challenges associated with these transformations. A rigorous academic training combined with training in practical and transferable skills embedded in an international network prepare our PhD students for careers in a number of fields. Many of our alumni successfully pursue an academic career and work at numerous prestigious universities and think tanks. At the same time, our alumni are placed in political and governmental institutions, in consulting, and in the civil society sector. Employers include Charles University Prague, Freie Universität Berlin, LMU Munich, Radboud University, University of Gothenburg, University of Oxford, and University of Zurich as well as organisations such as Oxfam America, the European Commission, and the KfW Development Bank.
