Program on International Law and Armed Conflict


Drawing on its world-class faculty and its extraordinary students, the new Harvard Law School Program on International Law and Armed Conflict (PILAC) provides a space for research on critical challenges facing the various fields of public international law related to armed conflict — including the jus ad bellum, the jus in bello (international humanitarian law/law of armed conflict), international human rights law, international criminal law, the law of state responsibility, and other relevant fields. In collaboration with student researchers, scholars, and practitioners, we engage with states, intergovernmental organizations, UN system actors, and NGOs through an array of activities.
