iCourts, the Danish National Research Foundation's Centre of Excellence for International Courts, is a research centre dedicated to the study of international courts, their role in a globalising legal order and their impact on politics and society. iCourts opened in March 2012 as a centre of excellence funded by a large grant from the Danish National Research Foundation. It was extended in 2016 after a succesfull midterm evaluation. The centre is extended until 2022. Furthermore, it has received substantial support from the Sapere Aude programme of the Danish Research Council and EURECO, a research excellence programme at the University of Copenhagen. The centre's research efforts aim at creating groundbreaking results within the field of inquiry through a series of closely integrated interdisciplinary research projects.
