The European Scientific Network on Law and Tobacco (ESNLT) is an academic network primarily of and for legal scholars in Europe with a clear outreach to policy and practice. The ESNLT aims to bring together legal scholarship, to provide a platform for knowledge exchange and facilitate exploring future research agendas. The Global Health Law Groningen Research Centre of the Department of International Law of the University of Groningen acts as ESNLT leading party. Key partners in knowledge utilization and valorization to policy and practice are the Dutch Cancer Society, Kom op tegen Kanker, Norwegian Cancer Society, ASH Action on Smoking & Health and the Belgian Alliance for a Smoke Free Society. The network activities are organized with financial support from the Dutch Cancer Society.

Call: we aim to build a sustainable network of legal scholars in Europe. Tobacco control is a niche area in legal scholarship and innovative knowledge exchange depends on cross-fertilization and comparison. The ESNLT therefore manages an inclusive approach and is thus by outset open to any legal scholar holding a relevant expertise to the network’s core focus. We particularly welcome legal scholars in Europe who would like to expand their work on tobacco control in Europe to get in touch. If you're interested in becoming a member or partner organization, please get in touch via
