Centre of International Law and Colonialism

Centre for the study of Colonialism, Empire and International Law

Building on SOAS’s unique remit to develop research into Asia and Africa, the Centre for the study of Colonialism, Empire and International Law (CCEIL) aims to provide a forum for inter-disciplinary research on public international law and its historical and contemporary relationship to Colonialism and Empire. The Centre’s research, carried out by members of the School of Law, professorial research associates, visiting fellows, and post-graduate students, is organised into three research programmes: international legal history and theory; international inequality; and the international regulation of violence.
