The Center for the Study of Humanitarian Law (CSHL) was established in August 2014. CSHL is an independent and non-monitoring university-based research center attached to the English Language Based Bachelor of Law program (ELBBL) at the Royal University of Law and Economics (RULE). CSHL conducts and supports quality research in order to promote human rights and humanitarian law through an academic platform to produce research in these areas. The work we undertake is aligned with our commitment to operate as a Center of excellence that offers a broad range of academic and professional resources in relation to human rights, and international humanitarian law to everyone. CSHL’s mission is not possible without the generous support from the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law (RWI), RULE, and our partners.



CSHL strives to become a leading university-based research center in human rights and international humanitarian law in Cambodia.



CSHL is committed to promote the understanding of human rights and international humanitarian law through rigorous research, high quality education, and greater cooperation.
