About the event
This event celebrates that SCILJ was established in 2012 and presents the findings of the research project ”The influence of International Law on the UN Security Council’s Agenda, Debates and Decision-making”. The overarching question of the project is to what extent and how international law influences states’ decision-making and actual behaviour when it comes to the use of force. The project has adopted a mixed-methods design, combining traditional legal approaches to sources of law and interpretation, empirical legal methods, and social science methods.
