PhD projects

Martin Trybus’ research aims to make a contribution to the understanding and development of the law of the European Union, especially its economic and constitutional aspects. He also works to establish European Union Defence and Security Law as a separate legal subject and to contribute to the understanding and development of European Union public procurement law. He has been involved in consultancy projects for the British, Dutch and French governments, the European Defence Agency, the European Commission and the OECD. These projects concerned public procurement regulation, in particular in Central and Eastern Europe, and the legal aspects of the European armaments market.

Professor Trybus can offer supervision in all his key areas of interest. He is currently supervising two doctoral researchers working on the following topics:

Barriers to a transatlantic defence procurement market
The EU-ACP Cotonou Partnership Agreement as a legal framework for peace and security in EU-Africa relations
