Research Platform

The Program’s research portfolio builds on Harvard’s world-class faculty in international humanitarian law (IHL)/law of armed conflict (LOAC), international criminal law, international human rights law, jus ad bellum, and other fields of international law related to armed conflict. We also consult with other scholars in the U.S. and abroad, diplomats, UN actors, humanitarian leaders, and military officials to better understand where research can help enrich and expand discussions and debates. 


Connection with the Harvard Law School Library

We work closely with the Harvard Law School Library—including Jennifer Allison (currently on leave), who maintains a library research guide for the Program—to maximize our use of the university’s unparalleled information and library resources.
