The Research Centre on Justice and Conflict Resolution (CRJ) ultimately aims to study all forms of contemporary justice, jurisdictional or non-jurisdictional, state or non-state. Research carried out therefore focuses as much on civil procedure in its strictest classic sense as on arbitration and alternative modes of litigation resolution.

Moreover, the notion of justice is approached from a transversal perspective of procedural law, understood both as a comparative law of internal procedures (civil, criminal and administrative litigation) and as research on common law during a hearing, such as expounded in particular by the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights, based on the notion of a fair trial.

Research efforts endeavour to understand the great metamorphoses of contemporary justice, such as Europeanisation and internationalisation of procedural sources, the rise of alternative modes or the dematerialisation of justice.

These are examined in accordance with a transversal approach, which recognises the important role of the history, philosophy and sociology of justice. Research work carried out tries to trace back the most recent developments in civil procedure over a longer time period.

Emphasis is also placed on comparative and international civil procedures. The Centre therefore welcomes doctoral students preparing a thesis on comparative law in the justice system. Equipped with a library, the Centre is devoted to developing documentary resources covering the justice system and procedures of different European countries in particular.
