ATLAS

The cooperative project ATLAS is the result of a call from the 7th European Commission Framework Programme. The project began on 1 February 2008 and will last a period of four years.

ATLAS studies the role and the impact of the rule of Law and International Humanitarian Law applicable during armed conflicts with the aim of effectively promoting and protecting human rights. Additionally it compares existing international legal rules with the practice of both EU Member States and third States in order to suport policy-making.
