The PhD in Global History and Governance is an advanced course of study and research at the end of which the student defends a dissertation based on original and independent scientific work. The course offers an educational programme based on a multi-disciplinary approach centred on history and law and open to contributions from other disciplines.

The programme focuses on the comparisons, connections and processes of globalization that have characterized different areas of the planet since the first era of global imperialism and does so by concentrating on the relational dimension of historical processes, legal regimes and the organization of power; on the interconnections between economic, political, legal, cultural and social factors; and on circulation, exchange and interconnection of ideas, persons, institutions, legal cultures, political models, concepts, rights and goods on a global scale.

The areas and themes on which the members of the scientific board can offer international level training and research preparation are: History and historiography; European empires of the modern and contemporary age; States, wars and violence in the 19th and 20th centuries; History of slavery and forced labour; The legal heritage of Europe and its integration; Religions and the sacred in the modern and contemporary world; Ideas and practices of citizenship; States, nations, languages, peoples, classes; Comparative law in the historical flux; European and International institutions; Global technical standards, indicators, finance and trade; Public and private powers as actors of global governance; General principles and methods of dispute resolution in the global arena.

The Ph.D. programme in Global History and Governance is aimed at students who are highly motivated, have a solid personal background, diverse language skills and are eager to deal with multi and interdisciplinary approaches.
