About ACT

The Amsterdam Centre for Transformative Private Law (ACT) is a leading international research centre on European private law. ACT offers high-quality contributions to research and education on the role of private law in constituting and changing societies. We understand private law in a broad sense, encompassing both traditional areas (including contract, tort, property, family, and company law) and relative newcomers in the field (such as consumer law, labour law, insolvency law and financial law). In our research and teaching we make use of a variety of methods in order to understand the various dimensions of private law.


Law as a vehicle for social change | Mainstreaming Non-Extractive Economic Practices (N-EXTs). The ultimate goal of N-EXTLAW is to achieve a non-extractive, sustainable economic model. Our mission is to understand how we can rethink our legal framework to support sustainable economic practices. In this way, law provides actions with meaning and can be used as a vehicle for social change.
