Welcome to the Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict
The Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict (ELAC) is an interdisciplinary research programme that aims to strengthen law, norms and institutions to restrain, regulate and prevent armed conflict. Drawing on the disciplines of philosophy, law and international relations, ELAC seeks to develop a more sophisticated framework of rules and stronger forms of international authority relating to armed conflict. Research activity addresses all aspects of armed conflict, including the recourse to war, the conduct of war, and post-conflict governance, transition and reconstruction.Join our mailing list>>

Dr James Martin (1933-2013)- The Co-Directors and staff of ELAC would like to express their great sadness at the death of Dr James Martin, and condolences to his family. As founder of the Oxford Martin School and funder of ELAC, the institute owes him an incredible debt, and his vision and generosity will continue in the research he made possible.
