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.
