The War Crimes Research Group (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 (or post-atrocity) Justice, encompassing the range of judicial and non-judicial mechanisms for accountability.
The War Crimes Research Group is based in the Department of War Studies at King’s College London and co-chaired by Professor James Gow and Dr Rachel Kerr.
