The Max Planck Institute (MPI) Luxembourg for Procedural Law is a dynamic research institution undertaking interdisciplinary and collaborative research in the fields of international, European and comparative, as well as regulatory procedural law. It is one of the five Max Planck Institutes outside the German borders, and the first one focussing on legal matters.

Since its inception in 2012, the Institute has developed its unique focus on a challenging field of legal research, namely the procedures underlying dispute settlement and decision-making processes, with the aim of identifying and analysing emerging trends in dispute resolution and decision-making across Europe and globally.

The Institute is now a leading research hub where the fundamental questions of procedural law are raised and discussed. This status is particularly so thanks to its overarching projects, such as the Max Planck Encyclopedia of International Procedural Law, which maps international adjudication at large and continuously incorporates entries and new topics. The other flagship project is ‘Comparative Procedural Law and Justice’.

The MPI Luxembourg aims to identify key trends and pressing questions arising in procedural law, so that these issues may be tackled from diverse perspectives and research methodologies. One such topic is the emergence of digital justice, touching upon themes such as online dispute resolution, the procedural dimensions of the interrelation between dispute resolution and information technology, and the procedural law and human rights aspects of artificial intelligence in dispute resolution and decision-making.

The Institute’s research is not limited to procedural law as such. Instead, procedure is contextualized within the concerned fields of law. Thus the work of the Institute reflects the fact that disputes are seldom about procedure as such, but touch upon substantive issues, with procedural law contributing to shaping the outcome.

Research Areas

Department of International Law and Dispute Resolution

The Department of International Law and Dispute Resolution investigates the mechanisms and techniques of international dispute settlement, and all forms of decision-making processes. It focuses on their underlying principles, and explores the related theoretical and historical schools of thought in international law.

Department of European and Comparative Procedural Law

The Department of European and Comparative Procedural Law addresses the whole range of judicial and extrajudicial settlement of civil and commercial disputes from a contemporary comparative perspective. Special attention is given to the development of European procedural law and the procedures of the European Court of Justice.
