Research Themes

As an interdisciplinary institute, ELAC carries out cross-cutting research on a wide range of themes in the areas of international law, ethics and international relations. They not only look at different aspects of armed conflict, but also at broader issues of international peace and security. Most of our research themes feature in ongoing or previous research programmes or projects.
