The Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies coordinates a Policy Research Centre on "Foreign Affairs, International Entrepreneurship and Development Cooperation" for the Flemish Government. A Policy Support Centre aims to scientifically support Flemish regional policies. The project brings together 17 senior and 10 junior researchers (including eight PhD students).
The Centre conducts (a) data collection and analysis, and provides (b) short-term policy supporting research, (c) fundamental scientific research and (d) scientific services.
We have opted to compose an inter-university consortium, in which the Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies will cooperate with several partners: the Antwerp Centre for Institutions and Multilevel Politics, the Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School and the H.U.Brussel. Within the KU Leuven, colleagues from the Faculty of Business and Economics, the HIVA - Research Institute for Work and Society, the Institute for International and European Policy, the Research Unit International and Foreign Law, the Institute for International Law, and the Institute for European Law are also involved in the project.
Research is structured in four thematic pillars: (i) International and European Law; (ii) International and European Policy; (iii) International Entrepreneurship; and (iv)Development Cooperation.
