1985 - 1994

During this decade the institute’s activities expanded in the areas of research and post-graduate training. The institute initiated, together with several Central and Eastern European universities and academic organisations the “Asser College Europe programme” which continued for many years.

Whilst its existence was threatened by a decision taken by the Ministry of Education and Science, at the end of the decade a favourable solution was found ensuring the institute continued existence with the University of Amsterdam as its governing body.
