Abstract:
The Centre for International Law of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel is the successor of the International Law department, and originates from the merge of 3 former institutes (90s): the Centre for the Study of the Law of the United Nations and the Specialized Agencies (REVN), the International Institutions Unit (INRI) and the Centre for the Study of East-European Socialist Legal Systems (Centrum OOST). Since 2003, this Centre constitutes, together with the Centre for European Law, the department of International and European Law (IERE).

The centre mainly performs research on the following four areas: (1) law of the sea, (2) law of international organisations, (3) international regional law in Africa and (4) the East-European legal system.

The marine-related research focuses on the international law of the sea in general. The main interests include marine pollution and the marine environment, the international and European fisheries law and maritime demarcation issues. On a regional level, the main focus lies on Arctica, the Baltic Sea and the South China Sea. Finally, the practices of the Belgian State are followed closely.
