Doctoral School of Law Enforcement

Established in 2015 the Doctoral School of Law Enforcement is currently the single doctoral school in Hungary explicitly focusing on research issues of law enforcement. In addition to the other faculties, institutes and organisational bodies of NUPS, the Doctoral School intends to involve scholars from external partners (international partners, universities and research institutes) in order to enhance the research programmes in law enforcement. The Doctoral School offers several formats of education, hence PhD students have the choice of full time (scholarship or self-financed) studies, part-time (self-financed) studies and individual training (self-financed) or individual preparation.

Research topics of the doctoral school:

  • law enforcement theory, history of law enforcement, national security and law enforcement;
  • specialized fields of law enforcement, the international and European Union law and policy aspects of law enforcement;
  • the legal, criminological, forensic and social sciences aspects of law enforcement.
