About the Institute
The Institute for Law, Science and Global Security was established to promote teaching and research in the areas of international law and international relations. Developments in international affairs, such as the American refusal to ratify the Statute of the International Criminal Court, the rejection of the Kyoto Agreement, or efforts to gain particular language in a Security Council resolution on Iraq are difficult to assess in the absence of an understanding of legal rules and an appreciation of the ways in which these rules may affect behavior.
