Armed Conflict, Peace Keeping, Transitional Justice
Law as Solution
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 will study 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 and will compare existing international legal rules with the practice of both EU Member States and third States in order to support policy-making.
ATLAS will mainly focus on the practice of peacekeeping and transitional justice in four States/regions: Cambodia, the former Yugoslavia (Bosnia and Kosovo), Haiti and Sierra Leone in order to draw from their experience with peace operations and national reconciliation procedures.
