Institute of Customs and International Trade Law at the University of Münster

 

 

Welcome to the Institute of Customs and International Trade Law!

 

The Institute of Customs and International Trade Law was evolved from the collaboration of the AWA Außenwirtschafts-Akademie GmbH (Foreign Trade Academy) and the former Department of Customs and Excise, which formed part of the Institute of Tax Law at the University of Münster. Since October 2016 the Institute of Customs and International Trade Law is an autonomous Institute of the University of Münster.

The former Department of Customs and Excise was created in 1995 with the aim of promoting researh into customs-related topics of both national and international importance as well as raising the profile of customs within the law faculty and business school.

The following pages provide an overview of the activities and research projects of the Institute of Customs and International Trade Law and the former Institute of Tax Law - Department of Customs and Excise. We hope you find them of interest: please contact us if you wish to know more!
