Law and Conflict Research Lab

The Law and Conflict Research Lab (LCRL) lab seeks to advance new knowledge about the interconnections between law and intra/interstate conflict.

LCRL brings together scholars, students, and practitioners examining law in armed conflict settings, peace processes, and state-building.

A primary aim of the research lab is to encourage rigorous social scientific data collection and analysis that informs our understanding of the relationship between law and conflict, law and peace, and law and governance. We seek to understand the causes and consequences of group-level laws, including their interaction with state/international laws, and the use of various legal mechanisms to maintain a durable peace.
