Transnational Advocacy Networks and Corporate Accountability for Major International Crimes  

This European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator Project (principal investigator: Dr. Raluca Grosesçu, University of Bucharest) is funded by the ERC under the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Program, and implemented by the National University of Political Science and Public Administration in Bucharest.  

In the spring of 2023,  hub members, in collaboration with their European counterparts, are co-organizing the second of five program workshops (the first was in Paris last July), which will take place in Bucharest in late-May. The workshop will convene transnational advocacy and corporate accountability scholars and practitioners from five continents and result in a book.
