The Van Vollenhoven Institute for Law, Governance and Development (VVI) is part of the School of Law of Leiden University. The Institute seeks to advance knowledge of the formation and functioning of legal systems in the developing world and their effectiveness in contributing to good governance and development.
In its research and teaching, VVI uses a socio-legal approach. The institute carries out research projects in Asia (notably Indonesia), Africa and increasingly in the Middle East and the Muslim world at large. VVI staff teaches several thematic and regional courses for Dutch and foreign students. In addition, VVI provides advisory services and training courses to policy makers and practitioners.
