Research within the ACIL in particular focuses on international constitutional law (including human rights law), international responsibility, international criminal justice, and the reception of international law in the domestic legal order. These themes are embedded in two Research Programmes.
Law and Justice Across Borders
Together with researchers from other legal disciplines, especially from European public and private law as well as jurisprudence, ACIL researchers aim at a better understanding and critical evaluation of the role of law in the processes of Europeanisation and globalization, and their countertendencies.
The Role of Law in Armed Conflict and Peace Operations
ACIL researchers investigate the increasing and changing nature of the role of law in situations of armed conflict and in various types of military operations including peace operations.
