About us

The War Crimes Research Group (WCRG) is based in the Department of War Studies at King’s College London.  We conduct research and teaching on war crimes – understood in the broadest sense – and war.  The Group is a focal point for researchers and practitioners across a range of disciplines, and our membership includes scholars, practitioners, policy-makers and others outside King’s.

Broadly, our research spans three overlapping strands: International Law and War, encompassing aspects of law in relation to security and armed conflict; War and War Crimes, encompassing the relationships between law, war, strategy, ethics and crime; and Transitional (Post-Atrocity) Justice, encompassing the range of judicial and non-judicial mechanisms for accountability.

Explore our Projects page for information on past and currrent research and our News & Events page for details of our events.

The Group also runs a mailing list (warcrimes@kcl.ac.uk), and you can follow us @WarCrimesKCL.
