About:
The Rule of Law in Armed Conflicts (RULAC) Project is an initiative of the Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights to support the application and implementation of international law in armed conflict.

Through its global database, the Project aims ultimately to report on every State and disputed territory in the world, addressing both the legal norms that apply as well as the extent to which they are respected by the relevant actors.

The RULAC Project is independent and apolitical. As set out in the disclaimer for this website, there is no intent to imply the expression of an opinion on the part of the RULAC Project concerning the legal status of any country, territory, city or area, of its authorities, or the delimitation of frontiers or boundaries. The RULAC Project uses as its list of states those able to formally adhere to United Nations treaties. As of September 2008, there were 195 states: 192 UN member states and three others (the Cook Islands, the Holy See, and Niue).

The RULAC project would not have been possible without the help of numerous interns, students and researchers. Particular thanks go to Milena Costas, Fiona Le Diraison, and Mitch Robinson for their invaluable work.

The RULAC project has been financially supported by a number of governments (Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom) and private individuals.
