Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - DynamInt

DFG Research Training Group: DynamInt

DynamInt is a graduate program funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) launched on October 1, 2019. Its common field of study is the equilibrium between harmonisation and plurality in European law. The core of the program is the development of rules, principles and institutions from the perspective of legal scholarship that inspire a dynamic vision of integration in order to face the challenges of processes of disintegration in the EU. 

The methodological approach of DynamInt is both international and interdisciplinary. DynamInt is situated within the outstanding network of leading universities in Europe united in the European Law School. The program also benefits from interdisciplinary cooperations under the auspices of the Law & Society Institute Berlin and several other institutes.
