The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS) has a highly diverse and international(ly oriented) student population. We strive to be a place where world citizenship, internationalization and networking come together. We invest in knowledge development, knowledge sharing and innovation. We value our international operating regional partners. We focus on the interaction between practice oriented research and education. The Hague University of Applied Sciences has identified four strategic themes for its research in relation to both the educational programmes and professional practice: Good Governance for a Safe World, Quality of Life: People and Technology; Next Economy en Connected Learning.
The research platform Good Governance for a Safe World is launching a new research group of Multilevel Regulation, positioned in the faculty of Public Management, Law and Safety. We are looking for a professor (0.8 fte) to lead this new research group.


Organisational context
Traditional dispute resolution based on current laws and the constitutional framework does not always resolve the disputes of this and future eras. The complexity of society, with interaction between different stakeholders (for instance international organisations, multinationals et cetera), requires alternatives for the traditional dispute resolution, e.g. alternative dispute resolution at different levels and in different ways (not in court).
The professor of Multilevel Regulation will initiate and conduct practice oriented research on these developments and find answers to questions such as:

  • What are suitable and effective ways to settle legal differences?
  • Which stakeholders, what rules and principles might play a role?
  • What demands does multilevel regulation pose on the competences and skills of legal and other professionals?
