Fund Professor Raymond Derine
To keep alive his drive to achieve a federal state, amnesty, a sanitised democratic practice, clarity in legal and administrative regulations and an objective appointment policy in public administrations, the Fund Professor Raymond Derine was created. By setting up this fund, his widow Lucretia De Mullie wanted to encourage research and studies aimed at greater justice in society. In particular, it achieves this goal by awarding a biennial prize of 2,500 euros to master's or doctoral theses related to legal, political, economic, philosophical or social justice in society.
