The In­sti­tu­te

Out­stand­ing schol­ars, ground­break­ing re­search, and ex­tens­ive con­sult­ing ex­pert­ise - these are the three pil­lars of the Max Planck In­sti­tu­te for For­eign and In­ter­na­tion­al Crim­in­al Law in Freiburg.

With more than 500 vis­it­ing re­search­ers from all over the world com­ing to the In­sti­tu­te each year, 17 kilo­met­ers-worth of books and peri­od­ic­als, and an in­ter­dis­cip­lin­ary fo­cus on crim­in­al law and crim­in­o­logy, the In­sti­tu­te is a bas­tion of in­form­a­tion and know­ledge for both aca­dem­ic staff and vis­it­ing re­search­ers. It is little won­der that the In­sti­tu­te is also fre­quently called-upon by gov­ern­ment agen­cies for as­sis­t­ance in an­swer­ing com­plex leg­al ques­tions.
