Research topics

The IRDEIC’s four departments base their research on 8 main areas:

  • European Union law
  • Private international law
  • Public international law
  • Competition law
  • Comparative law
  • European Criminal law
  • Tax law
  • National and European budgetary policies and public finances law
The IRDEIC research programmes benefit from the flexibility of collective and individual research, thus giving coherence to the overall policy.


The important research conducted at the institute is attested by the scientific events, thesis defences, publications and, in particular, the release in November 2014 of the long-awaited Volume 1 of the Grands arrêts de la Cour de justice (Major Decisions of the Court of Justice) published by Union Dalloz.

Academic programs

The IRDEIC contributes significantly to master's degree courses and other European-focused courses.


International relations

The IRDEIC maintains strong ties with foreign universities for scientific and pedagogic reasons.
