Mission

CERL is a non-partisan, interdisciplinary institute, dedicated to the preservation and promotion of rule of law values in the face of the changing nature of war. Dramatic advances in military technology, the increased presence of civilians in combat, the loss of a distinct location of war, novel threats to national security posed by the extension of war into Cyberspace, and the significant expansion in the use of the classification privilege—these developments challenge the legal and ethical framework that has traditionally constrained military intervention. CERL examines the implications of these and other facets of modern warfare for the rule of law. More
