The Ernest Mahaim Fund is intended to encourage studies in political economy and public and private international law, especially international labour law concerning Belgians and foreigners.
The Émile Waxweiler Fund is aimed to promote original studies on structures and social organizations, as well as their adaptation to changes in their environment globally. The two funds were merged in 2004. The grant will fund study tours, surveys or research, and to defray the expenses of publication or scientific endeavors.
Candidates must submit work or projects that serve the objectives of these two funds to be considered for funding.
