Should autonomous weapon systems be banned at the outset or is it possible to manage and regulate their development to ensure compliance with international humanitarian and human rights law? How to do so?
Ten years after the establishment of the UN Human Rights Council, our new publication highlights the current challenges related to the Coubncil’s approach to armed non-state actors and proposes recommendations to better address this phenomenon.
We are launching an updated version of our Rule of Law in Armed Conflict (RULAC) portal, an online database that identifies and classifies all situations of armed violence that amount to an armed conflict under international humanitarian law (IHL). The updated version includes all conflicts that have emerged over the last five years and are still ongoing.
We are a leading education institution in international humanitarian law, human rights and transitional justice.
Our research examines issues that are under-explored, need clarification, or are unconventional, experimental or challenging.
We provide training and short courses for professionals who want to deepen their expertise in a specific issue.
Our events provide a critical and scholarly forum for experts and practitioners to debate topical humanitarian, human rights and transitional justice issues.
