The Oxford Institute For Ethics Law and Armed Conflict
The Oxford Institute for Ethics Law and Armed Conflict is an interdisciplinary research institute based at the Blavatnik School of Government.
It looks at different aspects of armed conflict from the perspective of law, international relations, and philosophy. Our aim is to strengthen law, norms and institutions to restrain, regulate, and prevent armed conflict.
