Research

Research conducted at the HSE School of International Law approaches international law from the standpoint of politics, ontology, and international legal methodology. Researchers engage in rigorous analysis of international legal norms and institutions; the practices of international courts, tribunals, and arbitrations; international organization decisions; and the ways in which states apply international law. A particular area of focus is the relationship between international and national law: how is international law implemented and enforced domestically, and to what extent is it followed?

The School's staff trains Ph.D. students and Doctor of sciences candidates by mentoring them in their research and serving on dissertation councils. The School’s faculty members are highly active scholars in their fields who publish in competitive journals, serve on the editorial boards of Russian and foreign academic journals, and participate in top professional associations (ILA, ESIL, Law Schools Global League, etc.).

Two Research and Study Laboratories operate in the structure of the School: the Laboratory on the protection of state interests in the context of economic sanctions led by Professor Daria Boklan, and the Laboratory of International Justice led by Associate Professor Maria Filatova. In 2020, the Research and study group International Law in the Digital Age was created under the leadership of Professor Vera Rusinova.

The School conducts a regular research seminar called HSE Research Seminar on International Law and organizes international conferences, round tables, and seminars. Noteworthy events organized by our team include the following international conferences: ‘The 3R Initiative: Re-thinking, Re-packaging and Rescuing World Trade Law’ (2020); ‘Jurisdictional Immunities of States and Their Property: Emergence of New International Customary Law Rules – By whom?’ (2019); ‘International Law in Times of Trade Wars and Global Environmental Problems: Protection or Protectionism?’ (2019); and ‘The European Court of Human Rights in East-West Relations: Norms, Values, and Legal Politics’ (2018).
