The Law of Post-Conflict Societies
Max-Planck-Institut für ausländisches öffentliches Recht und Völkerrecht
SummaryA research project at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law deals with the role of law in the reconstruction of so-called post-conflict societies. It examines the integrative function of constitutional law and the various mechanisms of conflict resolution which may be used to address the underlying roots of specific conflicts. The research contributes to the framing of the co-operation and consultation projects the Institute is carrying out in a number of extremely fragile countries, including Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan and Somalia.
