The Journal of Conflict & Security Law (JCSL) is a thrice yearly peer-reviewed journal aimed at academics, government officials, military lawyers, and lawyers working in the area, as well as individuals interested in the areas of arms control law, armed conflict law and collective security law, and the interfaces between them.
JCSL covers the whole spectrum of international law relating to armed conflict from the pre-conflict stage when the issues include those of arms control, disarmament and conflict prevention, through to the outbreak of armed conflict and discussions on the legality of resort to force (jus ad bellum), to the coverage of the conduct of military operations and the protection of non-combatants by international humanitarian law (jus in bello). The international legal framework applicable to terrorism spans both the jus ad bellum and jus in bello. Treatment is also given to the conflict resolution stage, where the legal issues concern peace agreements, post-conflict rebuilding (jus post-bellum), territory, compensation and disarmament. Collective security mechanisms such as peacekeeping and military enforcement action are potentially applicable throughout
