Visiting researchers

The Cluster welcomes researchers who are interested in pursuing work related to the critique of international criminal law. Visiting researchers are fully integrated into the life of the Liverpool Law School and are encouraged to participate in the activities of the Cluster, as well as the many events, lectures and seminars held at the Law School and the University as a whole.

What we offer

As a visiting researcher you will be provided with desk space, a library card, and access to the university's online research resources. You will be fully integrated into the Cluster activities as well as activities of the university at large. The Cluster members have established significant expertise in international criminal justice research and its critique and are eager to both support and learn from visiting researchers. The Cluster is closely connected with the international research network CAICL (, which organises events, provides feedback opportunities for work in progress, and other research-related opportunities for its members.

Unfortunately, we cannot offer accommodation but we are more than willing to help you find something suitable. Researchers can visit the Cluster at any time in the year, but we strongly recommend that this is during the semester.
