Learn about us

We are a Harvard Law School research program exploring critical challenges through the lens of international law related to armed conflict. We combine traditional public international law research with targeted analysis of today’s changing security environments. Our mode is critical, independent, and rigorous. With a focus on depth over breadth, we aim to reaffirm the centrality of international law in regulating war-fighting, in diminishing the harmful effects of armed conflict, and in protecting civilians.
