RULAC: Rule of Law in Armed Conflicts

Initiated in 2007, the Rule of Law in Armed Conflicts (RULAC) project is a website that systematically qualifies situations of armed violence using the definition of armed conflict under international humanitarian law. RULAC also identifies the parties to armed conflicts. RULAC is currently monitoring more than 12 armed conflicts involving at least 23 states.

RULAC is still under development and new entries continue to be added. The scope of RULAC is currently limited to those conflicts that have emerged since 2011 and are still ongoing. Information on conflicts that started before 2011, including their classification, can be found on the old RULAC website.

RULAC is an initiative of the Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights.
