P.R.I.M.E. Finance Fellowship

The NIAS-P.R.I.M.E. Finance Fellowship programme, also known as the Woolf Fellowship programme, offers scholars from the legal and financial sciences and governance studies the opportunity to research a topic related to dispute resolution in complex financial transactions. It is a collaboration between NIAS and P.R.I.M.E. Finance - the Panel of Recognized International Market Experts in Finance – in The Hague.  

About P.R.I.M.E. Woolf Fellowship Program

P.R.I.M.E. Finance and NIAS established the Woolf Fellowship Program in honour of P.R.I.M.E. Finance’s Advisory Board Chairman, the Rt. Hon. the Lord Woolf of Barnes. Aim of the program is to deepen the understanding of complex financial transactions, and the ways in which conflicts can be resolved.

Each year, NIAS invites a selected scholar to hold a Woolf Fellowship at NIAS to undertake research with a view to publication of the work product in a leading academic or market periodical.
