The University of Glasgow has been awarded funding from the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union for a new Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) programme: LLM in International Law of Global Security, Peace and Development (ILGSPD). ILGSPD will spearhead an innovative approach to 21st century international legal education recognising the nexus between global security, peace and sustainable development.
Coordinated by the University of Glasgow (Scotland), this uniquely innovative degree programme is jointly delivered by a consortium of European universities: Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals (Spain), the University of Tartu (Estonia), Leuphana University Lüneburg (Germany), Radboud University (Netherlands), and Université libre de Bruxelles (Belgium).
For ECAS, this programme is a great enrichment in terms of the aspired academic exchange across borders, especially for the research cooperation between the University of Glasgow and Leuphana University Lüneburg. Above all, the programme highlights Europe’s position as a collaborative research environment. The internationally thinking and innovative experts graduating from this program will certainly make a special contribution to the scientific community.
We are proud to announce that three of the academic leads involved in this project are scientists from the University of Glasgow and from Leuphana:
- Prof. Dr. Jelena Bäumler (Leuphana University Lüneburg)
- Doctor Asli Ozcelik Olcay (University of Glasgow)
- Professor Christian Tams (University of Glasgow)
