The University of Antwerp Law Faculty’s Law and Development Research Group will be running a post-graduate certificate programme on “Sustainable Development and Global Justice” (SUSTJUSTICE) from 10 February to 30 April 2020. SUSTJUSTICE offers a comprehensive teaching programme based on the research lines of the Law and Development Research Group. These research lines contribute to SUSTJUSTICE’s four compulsory anchor courses, i.e.:
- International Law and Sustainable Development,
- Human Rights and Global Justice,
- Law in Developing Countries, and
- External Actors in Aid, Trade and Investment.
SUSTJUSTICE brings together a diverse group of leading experts from the North and South to introduce salient features of their disciplines, and to engage students in understanding and reflecting on key challenges for sustainable development and global justice.

In previous years, the programme was generously supported by the Belgian development cooperation (VLIR-UOS) which facilitated scholarships for a limited number students from the Global South. While scholarship applications are invited for SUSTJUSTICE, scholarship availability is contingent on the approval of the programme by VLIR-UOS and can only be confirmed in October 2019.
Deadline for scholarship applicants: 30th September 2019
Deadline for self-funded applicants: 1st December 2019
