About us

The War Crimes Research Group (WCRG) is based in the Department of War Studies at King’s College London. WCRG conducts research and teaching on war crimes – understood in the broadest sense – and war.  We aim to provide a hub for researchers and practitioners working on these issues 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 Justice and Reconciliation.

Visit the WCRG King’s College London webpage for more information on events, projects and people.
