War weakens democratic governance and the capacity to deal with crimes committed during the conflict. The international community s response to this has been haphazard. This project will create a world-class research institute, the Centre for International Governance and Justice, to advance new ways of thinking about building the structures for democracy and justice after conflict. The focus will be the potential contribution of international law to this enterprise. Through national and international collaboration, researchers will develop not only innovative theoretical models to ground international norms about governance and justice after conflict, but also practical proposals to implement them.
